Some people love the idea of spending all day sitting in front of a computer, writing code to make amazing websites and web apps that are useful, fun, or both.

Others…not so much. And that might have you feeling like tech isn’t for you. But that’s so far from the truth! There are so many awesome jobs in tech that don’t require coding all day. Some hardly require coding at all.

In all the years I’ve worked in tech, I’ve spent maybe 15% of my time coding, and most of that was done entirely by choice—because it’s fun!

For example, digital marketing (including social media marketing and content marketing, which is what I do) rarely includes coding beyond inserting a link or maybe designing an email template. And even then a lot or all of the work can be done with a visual editor, rather than coding by hand.

Other awesome tech jobs that pay well balance coding with other skills, like visual design. Jobs like UI designer, UX designer, and mobile designer can all be done with little to no actual coding (though being familiar with code is definitely a bonus).

    Nearly all of the things you mention happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this with this light previously. Your article really did turn the light on for me as far as this subject goes. However at this time there is actually 1 position I am not necessarily too comfortable with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual central idea of your position, permit me observe what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Very well done.

    Antes de comprar el C. pasé por varios concesionarios de otras marcas, sobre todo alemanas, y en algunos me sentí ninguneado, concretamente en Mercedes y eso que estaba interesado en un CLS. De todas formas, yo también sabía sobre la respuesta de la suspensión hidroneumática de citroen ante un pinchazo en una rueda (no en dos a la vez). Menciono al mercedes no porque este a sueldo de algun poder oculto sino porque segun este mismo portal, en la prueba del C , escriben que solo este coche esta a la misma altura en confort de suspensión. Yo que soy usuario de C creo que en muchos de los comentarios se están haciendo brindis al sol.

    Great post! I’d also add business analyst and business architect to the list. The roles are similar to product managers but you’ll most likely find them in larger organizations working with both business stakeholders and customers to figure out what to build next.
