Focus of Coding

What is everyone thoughts on WHY we code? And the reasons to learn

I have been learning web development for about a year yet I am very far from being able to gain a employment I have at least 1 to 2 years left. But that made me think why do we learn how to code and design? Is it only to gain a job with a FANG or is it to create. I think maybe we should change the focus to teach this not with goal of gaining work but to be able to simple create. I think that is why so many people get discouraged when learning. My coding heroes are Rekka and Devine from 100 Rabbits. I think I will follow their creative path.

What do you all think?
