In India too, with the recent proposal of the government to develop smart cities, having knowledge of IoT is a great add-on for students.

3. Web Development:

If you prefer freelancing, then web development is tailor-made for you since many companies tend to hire freelance web developers.

4. Python:

Python is what brings together IoT, analytics, and high-end games. You can create your own magical world, Super Mario, helper robots, and remote controlled cars. Using a peripheral device such as Raspberry Pi can help you realise how something as boring as programming can be turned into an exciting and fun activity. Even companies like Google, Yahoo, and IBM use Python.

5. C or C++:

If all the programmers had to form their separate nation tomorrow, C and C++ would indisputably be their national language. It is recognised globally and used in a multitude of applications. It is recognised worldwide and used in a multitude of applications.
