Job roles with MCTS Certification .NET Framework
Programming is the simple art of writing a set of instructions that a computer can interpret and that will produce specific results. Programmes come in all shapes and sizes and can be used for a variety of things: video games; word processing software; your online calendar; any web page. All of these are examples of programmes that you might use every day and each of them would be very different in their creation. Some programmes are so simple that they can be produced by one person, from start to end, in a matter of hours where others may take huge teams of people working together over a year or more in order to build in all the complex functionality needed to pull data from many different sources and perform very complex tasks.
As a computer programmer you'll write the code (the instructions) that tell the system what information to process and how to process it. The programme you write will depend on what your customer or your employer needs. You may need to work on more than one project at once so you'll need to be ordered and organised. You'll also need to be a logical thinker in order to make sure that your programme flows sensibly.
Programming job titles might include:
- Software Programmer or Developer
