That's one of the reasons I've put off learning about coding for so long. It seemed like a lot of effort to learn something that can become obsolete overnight. I'm starting to see the value in teaching myself now though. That's one of the reasons I'm here.
I was on the corporate side for a long time, and built a fraud prevention department. I'm finding too many companies are relying on 3rd party vendors now to handle their fraud prevention, much of which was designed by people who only understand the tech side. I had the ability to translate between tech, compliance, legal, brokerage, corporate and criminal. Very few people knew much outside their own silo.
To get into a company's fraud prevention department now seems to require specific coding backgrounds (unfortunately I think they are focusing on too few silos here). Never the less, I'm going to teach myself enough to get passed the simple minded hiring personnel, so I can eventually show them how it really needs to be done.
I still feel like learning code is like painting your grass a brighter shade of green one blade at a time.
