Study Finds The Most Popular New Skill Learned In Lockdown (And It Wasn’t Cooking, Or Learning A New Language)

A survey of over 300,000 people, carried out by UK organization YouGov, found that the most popular skill learned at home this year wasn’t cooking, a new language, or something crafty, it was tech-based skills, including coding and software development.

 

The study found that over 1 in 20 adults learned to code over the last year, and over 43% of those who did were learning from scratch: they had no previous experience in tech or computers.

 

Tech-based skills reflect the growing shift to digital-based services, and the jobs that come with them.
