Computer programmers write code for computers, creating software programs and instructing them how to run. Using a variety of computer languages, programmers determine which specific actions a computer can complete.
Usually, computer programmers take program designs from software developers and turn them into instructions for the computer. In some cases, computer programmer jobs may overlap with software developer jobs, and programmers may have a larger hand in developing software.
The most important skill needed for computer programmer jobs is a thorough knowledge of coding languages. Programmers need to know a variety of codes to successfully program software, including C++, Java, Python and more. Candidates usually need a bachelor’s degree in computer science or a related field. This education teaches candidates some coding languages and provides them with a foundation that will make it easy to learn new codes.
Although computer programmers are in demand, programming can be done remotely, so many companies hire programmers abroad. In spite of this, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 12 percent increase in computer programmer positions by 2020, which is about as fast as average.
