Why I’m No Longer Learning How to Code

At this point in my life, I’m no longer learning how to code (well for now at least). It may sound a bit ridiculous, bearing in mind that we post so much content related to learning how to code on Black and Forth. But right now, it’s not what I want to do. And one thing that I have learned over the years, is that if something isn't meant for you at that time, it is genuinely okay to drop it and move on.



So if I’m not learning how to code, what exactly am I doing? Am I still interested in the field of health tech? Well yes, I am. I just feel as though my experiences have helped tailor my interests and allowed me to explore different avenues that are not related to coding.


A major contributor to my decision was the health tech internship I did this summer. It opened my eyes to so many different aspects of tech, despite the start-up being so small. From product design, project management, to the corporate aspects of a health tech company, there are so many roles in tech. And many of these do not require you to code.
