Third, impact.

The average time people use their mobile phones in the US is currently 4 hours per day —imagine if we added on time spent with computers. That’s a massive chunk of our waking hours that we spend in front of apps and services — all built by code. The majority of the worlds population is now connected, over 5 million people as of April. Programmers are for sure one of the professions with the highest potential reach and impact on peoples daily lives. Source: Global Digital Snapshot
