Prashant’s Answer

Computer programming helps you improve your analytical and logical thinking. If you are looking to pursue a career as a computer programmer then it is highly important that your understanding of the fundamental concepts like algorithms and data structures is strong. Even though there are so many programming languages to choose from, once you master these foundations, you will find it easy to apply them to any programming language. If you are motivated to continue learning new skills then computer programming is an ideal career choice as it is always evolving and sometimes at a very rapid pace. Computer programming jobs are usually high paying and always in demand.

Karan’s Answer

That's great that you already enjoy programming. There are a lot of advantages because there is a lot of growth in this space, and many opportunities to apply your skills and learn. If you enjoy problem solving, knowing how to code, and seeing your program being used to solve a problem, or do something that couldn't be done before, is a great achievement. Also understanding the foundations is key, because once you understand the basic concepts you can pick up another language very quickly because the base concepts will always be the same.

Chetan’s Answer

Main advantage of being a computer programmer is, of course, better earning, thereby having better lifestyle.

As others suggested, you can expand your knowledge on computer programming, by learning new programming languages/developing new algorithms to solve complex problems (which are yet to be solved).

There are lot of things that can be solved by the technology (using programming), which can help making world more better place to live.
And since you really enjoy programming, you will enjoy solving such problems.
