Re: Cyber security
@Dr.T: Respectfully, I very much disagree.  The "shortage" of cybersecurity people is a mostly false one.  The real problem is age discrimination and companies not wanting to pay IT people what they're worth.

Instead, what a lot of companies do is offer salary packages that are far below market rate and then whine to the government that there's a shortage so that they can get H1-B and L-1 Visas approved for cheap overseas labor to be brought in.  Then they lay off their existing workforce (but not before having the people they're laying off train their replacements).

Rinse and repeat.

And, for that matter, preventing problems in the first place.

Cyber security
I agree, we are in shortage of Cyber security staff, this was not the case not long ago. These recent attacks scared people quite well.

" fancy GUIs we have now"

Another good point. Even Linux is more GUI then not anymore. Things become easier of course.

"Even without a specific focus on cybersecurity, learning to code is good for general "

I agree. Coding provides more insight into security of the systems, they get better understanding what might be the problem.

Learn to code
 

Learn to code becomes popular among younger generation simply because we figured out to make it very simple to code and most people would like to build something and interact with it.
