Computer Programming describes the process of telling a computer to do something, giving it a set of instructions which dictates how an application or piece of software should perform.
Computer Programmers are not necessarily needed by all companies in their tech department, as it is more about the creation stages of software, however, they might be outsourced to build some software.
Computer Programmers are mostly found in business sectors but can also be employed by government departments and educational establishments, for instance.
The majority of Programmers will be office-based and work in the computer science industry, like in design agencies.
As we've already mentioned, the life of a Computer Programmer can be quite varied, not only in terms of content (because they are facilitating software to work in a specific way for that client and thus get to experience a range of industries and products in their lifetime), but also in the nature of their work.
Computer Programmers might build software for a shop, work in cybersecurity for large law firms, or they might be involved in top-secret governmental activities.
Computer Programming, although anticipated to decline over the next decade, is a career that brings many benefits. The work can often be done from almost anywhere in the world, so you are not limited to local clients. This also offers variety in workload and, at times, travel opportunities for those meeting with overseas clients to discuss projects. You must be qualified to work as a Computer Programmer, but there are opportunities to train and grow during your employment. Your salary, though a decent entry wage, will also rise with experience and further training.
Since Computer Programmers often work at studios or agencies, there are many opportunities to be promoted and you could, one day, run your own successful company offering computer science solutions.
There are some quite specific areas of knowledge required by a computer programmer, such as the different programming languages (Java, SQL, etc...) but many will specialise in a certain one. Moreover, there are a number of skills that a Computer Programmer must possess that are also useful in many other professions. These include problem-solving, mathematics, communication, writing, organisation and attention to detail, to name but a few.
Being a good listener is also a very important quality to have, as you will often be working to a very specific brief for a client.
Computer Programmers ideally need to have a Bachelor Degree in a related subject such as Computer Science or Mathematics and also prove that they know the programming language they will be working with/in. That doesn't mean that people without these qualifications can't make it. Some with a different degree or certificate with the right aptitude may be able to get their skills recognised and work their way into the industry through their performance alone.
As an undergraduate, it's worth looking out for training courses, competitions or schemes to help you enter the world of Computer Science, as you might be able to bypass the three-year-long degree course if you have the talent.
Whatever level you are, you can never know everything so it's always a good idea to hire a tutor to take your skills to the next level. A tutor could help you to advance your career, change career paths or just give you some extra skills to add to your CV. Private tutors are especially useful for those studying towards a GCSE or A Level in Computer Science and wanting to get ahead and have an edge on their peers when applying for courses or work opportunities.
Finally, work experience in a Computer Science environment can be very attractive to prospective employers like Derby-based companies.
