1. Blogging

Now I know everyone and their mom tries to get you to start a blog. But hear me out!

If you’re a programmer, you can always make money through a blog in the programming niche.

And there are many ways to monetize a blog as a programmer:

  1. offering coding skills online
  2. charging for premium content
  3. earning through affiliate links

2. Join Coding Competitions

Coding contests are a great way to get paid good money with your coding skills. Most contests offer substantial cash prizes to the winners.

Some of the most popular coding contests include Topcoder, CodeChef, HTML5Contest, and CallingAllInnovators…but there are definitely more out there.

There are 3 competition areas:

  1. Design
  2. Development
  3. Data science

3. Develop Apps

If you are familiar with Objective-C or Swift, you can create an essential iOS app in just a few hours. Then launch it on the App Store. After that, you can sell it to the public through different kinds of media.

Once you’ve developed your app, you can sell it on Flippa for cash through an auction process or a classified listing.

4. Create A YouTube Channel

Create videos showing people tips on coding, and be consistent. The more subscribers you have, the more views you’ll get… and the more you will earn.

And there are many ways to earn from a youtube channel:

  1. offering coding skills online
  2. charging for premium content
  3. earning through affiliate links
  4. Google AdSense

you can also monetize code on byvalue.org, just upload it, set a price and you're good to go.

the platform creates an API from code, when requests are made to that API you earn money... easy :)
