An ideal world with endless possibilities. That’s just… perfect!
Dreams keep us alive and give us hope for the future. They drive us to live better than the previous days. So how do we translate dreams and ideals into reality?
It all depends on perspectives. How we view life in every situation determines our course of action. Every challenge offers us limitless opportunities. All of us have the potential to make a difference in the world. With the right skills, we can create what we can imagine. Imagination is the beginning of creation.
We create the future by solving the problems and challenges that we face. As technology becomes increasingly integrated into our lives, it is important to understand the value of coding skills. We can build software and systems to improve lives. Thanks to technology, a thing as small as a smartphone can offer countless opportunities for entertainment, education, communication, and shopping.
Technology can also be used in industries that we care about. even for social good. With the right skills, we can solve social issues and build a better world. For example, someone who cares about the environment can make a difference by automating processes and reducing the amount of labour-intensive work.
With technology, I believe that we can help fight against socioeconomic inequalities and injustices such as human trafficking, poverty, discrimination. One thing for sure — we will never be short of opportunities for developing software that have the potential to fundamentally transform life for millions of people around the world.
As former US president John F Kennedy said:
“We go to the moon not because it’s easy but because it’s hard. Because that goal will serve to organise and measure the best of our energies and skills”.
