Computer programming continues to be an expanding field and viable career choice well into the 21st century. As individuals and businesses seek technology-based solutions to everyday problems, computer programmers help tailor programs to suit clients' specific needs. They take software programs designed by software engineers and systems analysts and code... in specific language that makes it compatible with the computer and the end-user; they may code in different instructions based on specifications worked out with the client.
The most common programming languages used by programmers are C++ and Python, but there are countless others that a good programmer must be familiar with. These days, to make the process simpler and more consistent across the board, many programmers use "programming environments." These automate some of the programming process, allowing programmers to skip routine steps and get to the real work of creating a usable program.
Employers prefer to hire computer programmers with a bachelor's degree, or a two-year degree/certificate combined with relevant knowledge and experience. Programs in computer programming prepare students to be competitive candidates in the field, helping them to earn the latest technological certifications and giving them experience with new applications and programming languages. A curriculum in Computer Programming might include classes in software management, programming languages (C++, Java, SQL, etc.), computer systems, and logical operations. Students may also choose to focus on a specific industry in order to put their work in context.
