IT - Programming

Logic in Practice

Learn the language(s)

Unlike French, German or other “foreign” languages, computer languages are wholly technical in nature and are based on mathematical logic.

When you become a computer programmer, these languages are the tools of your trade as you write and test codes for new programs, install software updates, identify and correct coding errors, rewrite programs for different operating systems and much more.

In our digital-driven society, computer programmers are in high demand! You’ll have tons of job opportunities, some of which may even require you to learn an actual “foreign” language.
