If you can't code, you can bet a robot will be stealing your job within a decade. While we value all the soft skills of the humanities, adding more hard skills to that resume is becoming more and more essential every day.

These days, not being able to code is like not being able to read. The masses scoff at those who don't know HTML and CSS like the back of their hand, and people get turned down for jobs if they're not currently programming their third gaming app.

Shmoop (http://www.shmoop.com), a digital publisher known for its certified online courses, says if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Shmoop offers dozens of courses in computer science and technology, including coding courses that will bring users from total coding noobs to professional programmers in no time flat.

Shmoop's courses have a low barrier to entry: all that's required is an internet connection and a high tolerance for Java puns. With a subscription, users will get access to courses on HTML and CSS, Java, Python, R, and more. All that plus broader tech courses like Boolean Logic and Procedural Programming will ensure that users are exposed to a wide variety of programming essentials that will help them land a job and avoid the condescending glares of millennials everywhere.

"If you can't code, you can bet a robot will be stealing your job within a decade," says David Siminoff, founder of Shmoop. "While we value all the soft skills of the humanities, adding more hard skills to that resume is becoming more and more essential every day."

Individuals can subscribe to Shmoop for a low monthly rate and get access to more than two dozen computer science and technology courses. Schools and districts who want to add more courses to their offerings can contact sales(at)shmoop(dot)com for bulk discounts.
