Everything is increasingly having a computer in it. It's not just the phones, computers and tablets that use programs and applications. Wristwatches, fridges, TV, cameras, drones, air conditioners, electric cookers and almost all home appliances are beginning to run applications. Increasingly, people who have the ability to program will never run out of opportunities to build something great and very useful. They will always see new opportunities to turn their ideas into gold and perhaps change the world forever like the Google guys and the Facebook guy did.
