Janet’s Answer

It can be when working towards a deadline but it can also be exciting to get a tough algorithm working or a big feature done. One thing to consider is if you are spinning and getting nowhere. If you are getting stressed out about not making progress, ask a co-worker to review your code or do a few sessions of pair programming. Also, when you finish something big, take the opportunity to switch gears by working either on something fairly routine or something creative without a set goal. It rests the mind...

Dinesh’s Answer

No, coding is not hard to learn. However, like anything new, it's not easy to start, and how difficult a time one has with learning to code will vary across a number of factors.
Learning to code isn't impossible; while learning might require them to tap into areas they don't have prior familiarity with, those who have the time, persistence, and dedication can start gaining coding experience just as they can learn to do something else.
There are various reasons learning to code is beneficial. The benefits begin with developing valuable in-demand skills such as problem-solving skills and creativity. In addition, learning to code will provide you with nearly limitless opportunities for a career change. You can join major tech companies in Silicon Valley as a software engineer or launch your own startup and achieve financial independence.

Rebecca’s Answer

It really depends on the situation. Imagine that you are working on a project with very tight schedule, you would feel stress regardless you are working on coding or any other job types.
In terms of coding, under normal normal situation and with reasonable timeline, regardless you work as a developer or a student you could plan ahead to assign sufficient time to work on the assignment/project. You would not feel the stress.
This is more a question on the time management. On the other hand, technology is a fast changing industry. You would also need to assign time to keep your knowledge up to date.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!

Chetan’s Answer

In current world, working in every industry can be stressful, unless there is proper planning.
This applies to coding/software industry too. Now a days many software companies are using agile development where things are planned well, taking into consideration things like, resource availability, etc. and early reporting of issues/blocking, etc. This all makes things less stressful.

However, it can also depend on the software you are working. If it is Realtime like banking/finance/mission-critical/healthcare software's, where quick resolution is needed, there is less time to build/fix code, which might become stressful. However, it may not be every time.
