50% of top jobs require coding skills

A couple of things that caught my eye in an Economist article on learning.

code-to-riches

  • ~50% of the top job postings asked for the ability to code
  • The bulk of earnings growth for workers takes place between 25 and 35; after 45, it’s only the top 2% that see any earning growth
  • 80% of Coursera’s learners have university degrees

Worth a read.
