Should Your Girlfriend Learn To Code?

It’s funny, but since I started learning to code, I’ve had more than a few guys ask me to talk to their girlfriends / wives about learning to code. Cosmo, take note… This is what guys actually want!


I’m personally very happy with this trend. Not many women are exposed to computer science, so it’s great to see men who encourage their women to keep learning. A lot of women I meet are unhappy with their jobs but don’t think they can be a programmer, so it’s awesome that some of them have men in their lives who tell them they can.

That said, men, learning to code is not an easy journey. Once your girl starts, she’s going to need a lot of help and support to keep going, so be prepared to be there for her long-term.

Ladies, if you have a guy in your life who is encouraging you to keep learning like that, make sure to hold on to him!
