The typical education preparation for a computer programmer is a bachelor degree in computer science. For a limited number of programming jobs, a two year degree may be adequate. But to be competitive in this job market, you really need a four year degree and relevant experience and or certification in the area of programming you want to work.
If you want to be a system programmer, you must have a bachelor degree and must be able to work with database systems, such as DB2, Oracle, or Sybase. Knowledge of traditional programming languages is important, but today employers are putting a greater emphasis on object-oriented languages such as C++ and Java. Certification and or experience in these programming languages is needed if you want to be competitive in today’s job market.
The bottom line to educational preparation to be a computer programmer is that you need relevant experience, certification, and or appropriate technical training in the specific computer programming language or languages that you want to work in. A college degree gives you a foundation for the building of these necessary credentials.
For more information about education required for the computer programmer in the United States go to Occupational Outlook Handbook provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Employment of computer programmers is expected to decline slowly, decreasing by 4% during the time period of 2006 to 2016. This is due in part to offshore outsourcing and programming jobs now being completed by other computer workers such as computer software engineers. Programmers with a bachelors degree and experience with a variety of programming languages and tools will have the best job prospects.
Although employment for programmers is expected to decline, job openings will result from programmers leaving the profession. The languages that are in demand today include C++, Java, and other object-oriented languages, and job prospects will be best for those programmers who have expertise with these programming languages.

How To Leave Your Dead End Job
This is for everyone who is sticking with a job that no longer fits. Maybe it was right for awhile, for a certain time and place in your life. But not anymore. When was the last time you jumped out of bed with excitement about what the day would bring?
“But I love the people I work with.”
“It’s so convenient.”
“The money’s pretty decent, considering… “
I’ve heard all the excuses. Hell, I’ve made them. You know that job is sucking your soul and it’s time to leave. The only thing left to decide is how.
Above all, you want it to be your decision. Don’t let boredom and apathy lead to an attitude that gets you fired or passed over. Who wants to work with a burnout no matter how skilled they are?
The number one reason people stay in bad jobs is fear of the unknown. Are you hanging on to something that doesn’t fit just because it’s familiar? What if the unknown wasn’t scary? What if it was filled with joy and delightful possibilities? Sure, there’s that transition period where you leave what you can do in your sleep and head into new territory. I assure you that the downhill slide of staying too long is far greater than the steepness of a little learning curve. How might you make unknown territory more comfortable?

Drawing the map of West African Internet
Internet has nowadays become a booster of development. This knowledge sharing space allows people to communicate with ease anywhere and anytime, and it considerably reduces the prices of services while opening new horizons for progress: e-government, e-education, telemedicine, e-commerce, research, e-companies, remote assistance, e-tourism, etc. Its adoption and rapid expansion lower the rate of poverty in some developing countries, hence considered to be emergent.
New technique for repair work using experts from another location
If problems occur at a company's complex plant, the local staff is often not able to solve them without external support. Frequently, experts must travel to the plant; this can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Computer scientists have now developed a platform to enable communication between specialists and the company. Thus, the experts can instruct the staff in what has caused the problem and how it can be fixed. At the same time, specialists can supervise the repair work and are able to intervene in case of emergency via live broadcasting.
Clutter cutter: Computer modeling used to understand how messy cells contribute to cancer
In a messy house, people use computers to manage paper and photo clutter; companies use computer systems to track their inventory. Researchers are taking a similar approach to cell-molecular inventory control for cancer. They have created computer models, using their programming framework (PySB), which enable them to explore the complex biochemical processes that drive cancer growth.
Social gaming site effective weight loss tool, study shows
DietBet, a web-based commercial weight loss program that pairs financial incentives with social influence, delivers significant weight losses, a study has found. On Dietbet.com, players join a game to lose weight while betting money on themselves. Players all have four weeks to lose four percent of their starting weight. At the end of week four, all players who have lost at least four percent of their initial body weight are deemed "winners" and split the pool of money collected at the start of the game. To verify weight losses, players submit photo-based evidence of their weigh-ins to DietBet's referees at the start and end of each game.
New system accelerates verification of printed electronic documents
A system that speeds up online administrative procedures by automatically verifying and validating printed electronic documents, a process that had been done manually up until now, has been developed by researchers. "The purpose of this project is for our system to become the only one needed to generate and validate universal and officially approved CSVs for all the different public administrations in Spain," say the creators.
Computer arranges pictures based on artistic features
Until now, if a nature photographer wanted to arrange pictures of various butterflies systematically based on color or size to create an illustrated book, a lot of time was needed: The artist would have to arrange the individual pictures of the animals on the computer by hand to bring them into the requested order. Suitable software that would have been able to arrange pictures automatically based on certain characteristics did not exist. Researchers have now developed a method that makes it possible to arrange numerous pictures very fast.
K-Glass: Extremely low-powered, high-performance head-mounted display embedding an augmented reality chip

A new system combines simple control programs to enable fleets of robots -- or other "multiagent systems" -- to collaborate in unprecedented ways.
Social media, self-esteem and suicide: Nations with more corruption demonstrate more social media, less suicide
In nations where corruption is rife, it seems that citizens these days find an escape from the everyday problems that trickle down to their lives by using online social media more than those elsewhere. Research also suggests that these two factors -- more corruption, more social networking -- also correlate with lower suicide rates.
Finding the hidden zombie in your network: Statistical approach to unraveling computer botnets
How do you detect a "botnet," a network of computers infected with malware -- so-called zombies -- that allow a third party to take control of those machines? The answer may lie in a statistical tool first published in 1966 and brought into the digital age, say researchers.
'Envy-free' algorithm developed for settling disputes from divorce to inheritance

Storage system for 'big data' dramatically speeds access to information
As computers enter ever more areas of our daily lives, the amount of data they produce has grown enormously. But for this "big data" to be useful it must first be analyzed, meaning it needs to be stored in such a way that it can be accessed quickly when required.
Are you political on Facebook?
Social media and networks are ripe for politicization, for movement publicity, advocacy group awareness, not-for-profit fund-raising campaigns and perhaps even e-government. However, the majority of users perhaps see these tools as being useful for entertainment, interpersonal connections and sharing rather than politics. A research paper reinforces this notion. The results suggest that the potential for political activism must overcome the intrinsic user perception that online social networks are for enjoyment rather than utility, political or otherwise.
Computing with silicon neurons: Scientists use artificial nerve cells to classify different types of data
Scientists in Germany are using artificial nerve cells to classify different types of data. These silicon 'neurons' could recognize handwritten numbers, or distinguish plant species based on their flowers.

The findings could lead to the development of new drugs to treat aging.
New approach to vertex connectivity could maximize networks' bandwidth
Computer scientists are constantly searching for ways to squeeze ever more bandwidth from communications networks. Now a new approach to understanding a basic concept in graph theory, known as "vertex connectivity," could ultimately lead to communications protocols -- the rules that govern how digital messages are exchanged -- that coax as much bandwidth as possible from networks.
New evidence that computers change the way we learn
People who use computers regularly are constantly mapping the movements of their hand and computer mouse to the cursor on the screen. Now, researchers have shown that all that pointing and clicking (the average computer user performs an impressive 7,400 mouse clicks per week) changes the way the brain generalizes movements.
Never forget a face: New algorithm uses subtle changes to make a face more memorable without changing a person's overall appearance
A new algorithm uses subtle changes to make a face more memorable without changing a person's overall appearance.
Brain neurons subtract images, use differences
Ten million bits -- that's the information volume transmitted every second with every quick eye movement from the eye to the cerebrum. Researchers describe the way those data are processed by the primary visual cortex, the entry point for the visual information into the brain. Deploying novel optical imaging methods, they demonstrated that the brain does not always transmit the entire image information. Rather, it uses the differences between current and previously viewed images.
Computer security: Reducing risks of malware infections
Installing computer security software, updating applications regularly and making sure not to open emails from unknown senders are just a few examples of ways to reduce the risk of infection by malicious software, or "malware". However, even the most security-conscious users are open to attack through unknown vulnerabilities, and even the best security mechanisms can be circumvented as a result of poor user choices.

Researchers have taken a first step toward this capability in a new study in which they analyzed five million such images.
Love connection: Advice for online daters
Most online dating users don’t choose a potential mate the same way they choose a movie to watch, but new research suggests they’d be more amorously successful if that’s how their dating service operated.
Database tracks toxic side effects of pharmaceuticals
Sometimes the cure can be worse than the disease. Pharmaceutical drugs are known for their potential side effects, and now researchers have updated an extensive toxicology database so that it can be used to track information about therapeutic drugs and their unintentional toxic effects.
Human-computer interface technologies follow consumers' actions, offer help
A pan-European initiative called SMARCOS focuses on developing technology based on internet sharing between devices. The technology allows the interfaces of various smart devices to follow consumers' actions and react immediately to their needs. The smart coaching service, for example, can use all the user's digital devices for motivating his/her behavior towards the goals or for reminding medication.
Neurofeedback tunes key brain networks, improving well-being in PTSD
Pioneering research points to a promising avenue for the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder: utilizing neurofeedback training to alter the plasticity of brain networks linked to the condition. During neurofeedback, intentional control of one's own brain activity may be learned with what's called a brain-computer interface, which is able to represent graphically a person's real-time brain activation on a computer.
