Programming brings more equality to the world than you can imagine.
Not everyone is born rich, not everyone is born in a rich country, not everyone has access to the goods we take for a grant, but there is one thing which does not depend on our precondition and environment, and this is curiosity. People of all nations, gender, colors, have some or no education, they all can be curious, can be intelligent, problem solvers. They all share something in common, and they have the potential to become IT engineers. Not all of them of course, do a study or show interest in the IT industry. Some people with a technical predisposition, never get into the tech jobs, some become another sort of engineers: electric, mechanical, etc. But currently, there is no higher demand for engineers, than for IT engineers.
Become an IT engineer was never easier! All sort of education material is available online you don't need to go into the traditional education system to obtain it. And guess what, IT’S FREE! You need some internet connection to obtain the amount of education material you won't be able to listen, watch and read for your entire life. You have to read it somewhere, and that’s your computer, tablet or phone, those devices never got cheaper as they are today, they are affordable to the wide range of the population. So you don't need to be born rich or having so many starting capital, you don’t have to put tons of money into the school system, you open a web page and learn.
Here is the point when you might better understand if you are coming from undeveloped countries than the folks from first world countries. Being a software developer not just come with an equal chance for learning, but also for earning. This brings a huge difference compared to the other professions. Software engineers can easily find a job, and they can work remote, which means they are competitive on the global market. If you’re competitive on the global market, your income does not depend on local standards and incomes. You become valued based on your skills, not based on your physical location.
There is no job in this world, currently, which gives fairer chance regardless of our starting points.
