Press Release

Coding: The 21st Century’s Most Valuable Skill is the latest book by best-selling non-fiction author Simon Monk. 

Aimed squarely at anyone contemplating a career in the software industry, this book gives the reader a taste of coding, as well as a guide to the real-life experiences of working in software. 

[Author Quote] Drawing on my 30 year career in software, as well as interviews with coders from the very biggest and smallest of software companies in the USA and UK, I hope I have shone a light on this industry that is so often hidden from outsiders.

The book is not afraid to pull the reader into the world of coding, with some real world practice. No prior coding experience is required and the reader is led step-by-step through installing the necessary software on  their Mac or PC and taking some first tentative steps.

The paperback and eBook editions are both in full color and are illustrated with comic-strips that make for an amusing and easy read.

If you are interested in a career in software, or just want to learn a bit more about what makes coders tick, then this book will provide you with valuable insights. Released in August 2023, the book is available from Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
