users are comfortable with programming as a hobby. Although 14,028 respondents have not been

programming to survive in this competitive era but enjoying programming as well.

America with 12,469 users, India is in the second position with 8403 respondents, the United Kingdom

have enough opportunity to learn or code for academic purposes, people can code as their hobby and
explore programming with their accessible media.

The young generation in the programming sector:

While it is clear that the maximum number of teenagers from the city area is now involved in tech
enthusiasm, most of the coders have started their code in their 20. It might have started as
interest or not but in the end, it has become a hobby come passion. In A recent study from

the respondents, it also holds major significance that young individuals from 10-14 age have
started coding at a primary age of their education which certainly is a hope for the country.

youtube for entertainment and recreation but also trying to inspect and explore the new tech
movement by coding.
