Firstly I know many of you will say “Yes of course when you get a job in a big tech company you probably will become rich”. Hmm…. this is true to some extent But I am talking about becoming a multi-million or even billionaire. Before looking at the answers from the view of a programmer let’s look at the views of a non-programmer.
Non-Programmer View
There is no such thing as a programmer becoming a billionaire overnight, if this ever happened it was just a fluke. Anybody who thinks that programming can make you instantly rich overnight is delusional and they are hoping to be the next Bill Gates or Mark Zuckerberg. Billionaires are not made overnight, it takes years of hard work and a bit of luck to become one.
Programmer View
It is possible to become a billionaire from programming, however, how you were able to make whatever you were able to make from programming in this way is a bit more complicated. You might have come across a very lucky programmer who was able to make a million dollars in an afternoon because he found a bug in some search engine. Because of that, he has been paid a large sum of money.
However, most programmers are not able to make a living from that kind of programming. Most programmers have to work a 9-to-5 job and write programs during their spare time. You may know someone who can earn from programming as well, but this will not make you a billionaire. Therefore, if you want to be a programmer, you should not expect to get rich quick I mean becoming a billionaire.
Let’s talk about making money as a programmer. There are many ways you can make money as a programmer one way is by creating the next Facebook or Instagram but I am not going to talk about that, although if you are able to do that you can actually become a billionaire or maybe the first trillionaire or zillionaire but there are other ways you can also make a lot of money as a programmer which include selling your skill as a freelancer and creating digital content. I highly recommend you check out these articles below to read more about it.
I think In programming, there is no one thing that you can make money off of. Real money comes from creativity and filling a need. No one can (or will want to) tell you exactly what works. When you can clone a program and make money, you are automatically in a niche market. The trick is to come up with ideas that fit the needs in a market in which the need hasn’t already been met. I know this is a pretty vague answer, but it’s the best I can give you.
In conclusion, if you’re looking to make some serious money through programming, you can. But like with any other job, it requires hard work and dedication. Figure out what you’re passionate about and make it work for you. Best of luck!
