Opportunities in tech are the same for everyone. You don’t even have to go to college to learn programming, because it’s at your disposal online. Take some free or even paid courses on Udemy for example and you’re ready to build your own app or website. It’s incredibly easy to start a career in development, for everyone.

And if you’re having trouble getting hired, or you have the best idea for an app or website, you can easily start you’re own business or go freelancing. You don’t need excessive amounts of money to start. Just a pc or laptop and you’re able to code away.

Yes, it’s hard to get into the big companies, but that’s hard for everyone. Just don’t conflate the big companies with the whole programming industry. They aren’t the same.
