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?

First EU e-Inclusion map measures the potential for improved digital literacy
An EU-27 survey of intermediary organizations operating on the education, social and employment sectors and providing IT training has produced a first ever assessment of the e-Inclusion intermediary sector. It accounts for a total of 250,000 organizations, or one e-Inclusion actor per every 2,000 inhabitants. One in two employs 10 staff or less and operates on a budget smaller than €100,000. Half of the e-Inclusion actors go further and offer employment–related training.

Computer scientists have developed a new password system that incorporates inkblots to provide an extra measure of protection when, as so often occurs, lists of passwords get stolen from websites. This new type of password, dubbed a GOTCHA (Generating panOptic Turing Tests to Tell Computers and Humans Apart), would be suitable for protecting high-value accounts, such as bank accounts, medical records and other sensitive information.
DNA software identifies people by testing relatives' DNA
New software is able to identify people from their relatives’ DNA. The software has already been used to identify the victims – the majority of whom were Dutch – of the 2010 Tripoli airplane crash, and in 2012 to find out who had murdered a young Dutch woman, Marianne Vaatstra, in 1999.

A prototype new IP layer for the internet has been designed. Called PURSUIT, it replaces a system in which we obtain information from servers with a model similar to p2p file-sharing, but on a massive, internet-wide scale. Content would be accessed not from servers, but in fragments from other people's computers.
Understanding the difference between 'human smart' and 'computer smart'
Considering 798 to be an odd number is endemic to human cognition, reveals a new study. A common assumption in the cognitive sciences is that thinking consists of following sets of rules (as it does in a computer). A recent research argues that unlike digital computers, which are designed to follow rules, the computations performed by the neural networks that make up our brain are inherently context dependent. People sometimes make seemingly strange mistakes like thinking that 798 is an odd number despite knowing how to identify odd and even numbers.
Researchers turn to technology to discover a novel way of mapping landscapes
Using computer technology to map patterns of land cover reveals types of landscapes and holds applications for numerous fields in research and planning.

Beautiful brushstrokes drawn from data
A good painter uses simple strokes of a brush to bring texture, contrast and depth to a blank canvas. In comparison, computer programs can have difficulty reproducing the complex and varied forms of brushstrokes, and often require painstaking effort to mimic a brief sweep of paint. A new program creates the look and texture of actual brushstrokes.
Brain may rely on computer-like mechanism to make sense of novel situations
Our brains give us the remarkable ability to make sense of situations we've never encountered before -- a familiar person in an unfamiliar place, for example, or a coworker in a different job role -- but the mechanism our brains use to accomplish this has been a longstanding mystery of neuroscience. Now, researchers have demonstrated that our brains could process these new situations by relying on a method similar to the "pointer" system used by computers. "Pointers" are used to tell a computer where to look for information stored elsewhere in the system to replace a variable.

To demonstrate the kind of complex behaviors the algorithms can achieve, researchers videotaped an experiment in which a single controller used simple group commands to direct 12 robots into a complex shape -- a capital R.
Data storage: Better hard drives ready for lift-off
Operating a hard disk drive is as complex as keeping a superfast car on the road. Read/write heads within the hard disk must process a huge amount of data at high speed. Controlling the motion of the slider housing these heads is crucial: if the slider crashes, it could destroy the hard disk.

Computer can infer rules of the forest
Researchers have devised a computer algorithm that takes intermittent samples -- for example, the number of prey and predating species in a forest once a year, or the concentration of different species in a chemical bath once an hour -- and infer the likely reactions that led to that result. They're working backward from traditional stochastic modeling, which they say could help unravel the hidden laws in fields as diverse as molecular biology to population ecology to basic chemistry.
Six months of computing time generates detailed portrait of cloth behavior
It would be impossible to compute all of the ways a piece of cloth might shift, fold and drape over a moving human figure. But after six months of computation, researchers are pretty sure they've simulated almost every important configuration of that cloth. This presents a new paradigm for computer graphics, in which it will be possible to provide real-time simulation for virtually any complex phenomenon.
