One of my New Year’s resolutions is to become less of a technological luddite. Somewhere in between Instagram and Snapchat, I became that old guy who has to get someone to help him set up his phone (this is a true story). But hardware aside, I really want to learn how to write some basic code. It’s the new Mandarin, if you ask me. Almost everything that matters is published in code.
In my search, I came across this introductory guid. Caveat: this infographic is already a bit out of date. Apple has moved on to Swift as its new coding language of choice.
Rolling Alpha posts about finance, economics, and sometimes stuff that is only quite loosely related. Follow me on Twitter @RollingAlpha, or like my page on Facebook at www.facebook.com/rollingalpha. Or both.

what about code for non web or app based functions like VBA or Matlab? Also I think these average salaries are very high so I’d be interested to know what the avg number of years experience is to get those avg salaries
I recommend python by the way, or maybe VBA if you use excel a lotReply
