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.

Job outlook:

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

By: Liz Sumner, M.A., CPC

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?

Important and complex systems, from the global financial market to groups of friends, may be highly controllable
Scientists have discovered that all complex systems, whether they are found in the body, in international finance, or in social situations, actually fall into just three basic categories, in terms of how they can be controlled.
WPA2 wireless security cracked
There are various ways to protect a wireless network. Some are generally considered to be more secure than others. Some, such as WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), were broken several years ago and are not recommended as a way to keep intruders away from private networks. Now, a new study reveals that one of the previously strongest wireless security systems, Wi-Fi protected access 2 (WPA2) can also be easily broken into on wireless local area networks (WLANs).
Information systems professors determine successful software programming aids
The success of having software programmers work in pairs greatly depends on the ability level of those individual programmers, two professors have written in a recent article.
Innovative quantum computer under scrutiny
A new and innovative computing machine is currently attracting a great deal of attention in specialist circles. A research team has now confirmed that the machine uses quantum effects. However, it is not any faster than a traditional computer.
Follow the ant trail for drug design: Ant behavior inspires software design
New drugs often fail because they cause undesirable side effects. Researchers have now developed simulation software that predicts the properties of active agents and virtually builds new ones. The software's search process is modeled after the behavior of ants. In order to allow the software to search for new composite agents, the research team uses an ant algorithm. Like an ant colony on the search for food, the algorithm screens through the molecular building blocks for components with the desired properties. Depending on the strength of the desirable and undesirable effects of the virtual products, the building blocks receive a 'grade'. In the ant world, this would equate to marking the trail to food with pheromones.
Do you know whether this story was written by a human? Computer generated vs. journalistic content
A recent study investigates how readers perceive computer-generated news articles. The advent of new technologies has always spurred questions about changes in journalism -- how it is produced and consumed. A recent development which has come to the fore in the digital world is software-generated content. A recent article investigates how readers perceive automatically produced news articles vs. articles which have been written by a journalist.
Languages written to design synthetic living systems useful for new products, health care
A computer-aided design tool has been developed to create genetic languages to guide the design of biological systems. Known as GenoCAD, the open-source software was developed by researchers to help synthetic biologists capture biological rules to engineer organisms that produce useful products or health-care solutions from inexpensive, renewable materials.
Operating room computer program improves care, could save U.S. health care system millions
OrthoSecure(TM), a novel computer-based system for operating rooms that is designed to improve the care of patients undergoing a knee or hip replacement and to minimize the number of implant parts that are erroneously opened and not used, has been launched in an American hospital for the first time. OrthoSecure(TM) could lead to increased efficiency and significant saving to the U.S. health care industry.
How Twitter shapes public opinion
How exactly does Twitter, with its 241 million users tweeting out 500 million messages daily, shape public opinion? That question was tackled by a group of researchers in China, who investigated how opinions evolve on Twitter by gathering about 6 million messages (tweeted over a six month period), which they ran through algorithms and analyzed. The work reveals several surprises about how Twitter shapes public opinion, researchers say.
New software records vast amounts of hyerspectral data in real time
Cameras with hyperspectral sensors can observe far more than the human eye. Unlike the retina, which has only three color receptors (red, green and blue), these sensors can generate 130 different color values per pixel. Using this high-grade color resolution, an entire range of different materials can be differentiated impeccably -- even if, at first glance, they appear the same to the human eye. Researchers are now unveiling the SpectralFinder -- a software application that can record vast amounts of hyperspectral data on a mobile platform and analyze them in real time.
Software analyzes apps for malicious behavior
Apps on web-enabled mobile devices can be used to spy on their users. Computer scientists have developed software that shows whether an app has accessed private data. To accomplish this, the program examines the “bytecode” of the app in question.
Computational tool offers new insight into key biological processes
Researchers have developed a computational tool designed to guide future research on biochemical pathways by identifying which components in a biological system are related to specific biochemical processes, including those processes responsible for gene expression, cell signaling, stress response, and metabolism.
Three out of every four European banks fails in handicap accessibility of their websites
Researchers have analyzed the websites of nearly 50 banks from the EU to check whether any user, even if disabled, has equal access. The results show that this right is not fulfilled in 74 percent of cases, and therefore they demand greater interest from financial entities in this technological and social problem.
When disaster strikes: Safeguarding networks
Disasters both natural and human-caused can damage or destroy data and communications networks. New information on strategies that can mitigate the impacts of these disasters.
Platform would protect smartphones from cyber criminals
Criminals don't have to pick your pocket to get what they want out of your mobile. But a certifiably secure operating platform is being developed by researchers so that consumers can be confident that their mobile data is safe.
Copied from nature: Detecting software errors via genetic algorithms
Software developers are spending about the half of their time detecting errors and resolving them. Projected onto the global software industry, this would amount to a bill of about 312 billion US dollars every year. Researchers are now automating the process.
Security tools for Industry 4.0
An increasing number of unsecured, computer-guided production machinery and networks in production facilities are gradually evolving into gateways for data theft. New security technologies may directly shield the sensitive data that is kept there.
New technique targets C code to spot, contain malware attacks
Researchers have developed a new tool to detect and contain malware that attempts root exploits in Android devices. The tool improves on previous techniques by targeting code written in the C programming language -- which is often used to create root exploit malware, whereas the bulk of Android applications are written in Java.
Mouse brain atlas maps neural networks to reveal how brain regions interact
Different brain regions must communicate with each other to control complex thoughts and behaviors, but little is known about how these areas organize into broad neuronal networks. In a new study, researchers developed a mouse whole-brain atlas that reveals hundreds of neuronal pathways in a brain structure called the cerebral cortex. The online database provides an invaluable resource for researchers interested in studying the anatomy and function of cortical networks throughout the brain.
New search engine delivers content matched to student ability
An Internet search engine developed specifically for schools is being tested as a way to increase reading abilities in challenged students and help motivate intellectual development in gifted students, while saving schools money on textbooks. Complexity Engine uses a sophisticated algorithm to search websites for content and delivers free, customized and age-appropriate reading materials to a user's computer. It promises to give teachers, parents and students an efficient, affordable way to promote reading. Teachers and administrators can set parameters for the search results, and the reading experience can be either student self-directed or guided by the teacher.
Digital ears in the rainforest: Estimating dynamics of animal populations by using sound recordings and computing
A Finnish-Brazilian project is constructing a system that could estimate the dynamics of animal populations by using sound recordings, statistics and scientific computing. The canopy in a Brazilian rainforest is bustling with life, but nothing is visible from the ground level. The digital recorders attached to the trees, however, are picking up the noises of birds.
Merkel, the Chancellor of Germany, or Merkel, the soccer coach? Software maps ambiguous names in texts to the right person
Computer scientists have developed software that resolves the ambiguity of names within texts automatically. This mapping between mentions and actual entities like persons not only improves search engines, but also makes it possible to analyze huge amounts of text efficiently.
Horticulture: Multiple commercial uses of wireless sensor networks outlined in report
A review examines three on-farm case studies of product development, deployment, and implementation of wireless sensor networks as a means to increase irrigation efficiency in commercial horticulture operations. The report focuses on the use of capacitance-based soil moisture sensors to both monitor and control irrigation events, describing the implementation and use of soil moisture-based irrigation hardware and software developed.

A system that automatically fills in the gaps in programmers' code becomes more powerful. A recent programming language called Sketch allows programmers to simply omit some of the computational details of their code. Sketch then automatically fills in the gaps.
Faster tumor analysis software developed, speeds cancer discoveries
Researchers have fashioned a new key to unlocking the secrets of the human genome. The Binary Indexing Mapping Algorithm, version 3 (BIMA V3) is a freely available computer algorithm that identifies alterations in tumor genomes up to 20 times faster and with 25 percent greater accuracy than other popular genomic alignment programs. “BIMA allows us to evaluate tumor genomes in a fraction of the time it takes many popular technologies,” says the senior author of the paper. “We believe this tool will lead to a better understanding of tumor genomics, and ultimately better therapy for patients with cancer.”
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
Researchers in South Korea have developed K-Glass, a wearable, hands-free HMD that enables users to find restaurants while checking out their menus.
Fixing broken links the fast way: Data links quick-fix developed
Software that can fix 90 percent of broken links in a web of data, assuming the resources are still on the site's server, has been developed.
Herding robots: New system combines control programs so fleets of robots can collaborate
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
Whether it’s season tickets to Green Bay Packers’ games or silver place settings, divorce and inheritance have bred protracted disputes over the assignment of belongings. But, now, a trio of researchers has found a method for resolving such conflicts in an envy-free way.
Smart Notices could take us beyond copyright
Dynamic Smart Notices could replace standard licencing agreements for software, online services and digital goods, according to a researchers.
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.
Crowdsourced RNA designs outperform computer algorithms
An enthusiastic group of non-experts, working through an online interface and receiving feedback from lab experiments, has produced designs for RNA molecules that are consistently more successful than those generated by the best computerized design algorithms, researchers report.
Study helps researchers better estimate citrus crop yields
An algorithm could help scientists assist citrus growers predict when to plant and harvest their crop further in advance.
Assessing others: Evaluating expertise of humans, computer algorithms
Researchers used fMRI technology to monitor the brain activity of volunteers as they interacted with "experts" -- some human, others computer algorithms -- to predict the behavior of a hypothetical financial asset. Volunteers responded more positively to human rather than computer "experts."
Smart object recognition algorithm doesn't need humans
If we've learned anything from post-apocalyptic movies it's that computers eventually become self-aware and try to eliminate humans. One engineer isn't interested in that development, but he has managed to eliminate the need for humans in the field of object recognition by creating an algorithm that can accurately identify objects in images or video sequences without human calibration.
Access to technology improves older adults' health
A professor of psychology is exploring the potential benefits of computer access to senior citizens' health.
Safer vehicles brake, steer out of harm's way
Scientists are working with a team at car manufacturer Volvo to develop a vehicle control system that can take over steering and breaking when it detects an imminent collision. The computer algorithm on which the team is working that can make split-second decisions on behalf of the driver and so reduce the risk of serious road accidents.
New algorithm can dramatically streamline solutions to the 'max flow' problem
Algorithm promises to greatly streamline solutions to the 'max flow' problem.
Turning off 'aging genes'
Restricting calorie consumption is one of the few proven ways to combat aging. Now researchers have developed a computer algorithm that predicts which genes can be "turned off" to create the same anti-aging effect as calorie restriction. 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.
New results make development of quantum computers more realistic
New research will make the eventual development of the quantum computer more feasible.
Hipster, surfer or biker? Computers may soon be able to tell the difference
Are you a hipster, surfer or biker? What is your urban tribe? Your computer may soon be able to tell. Computer scientists are developing an algorithm that uses group pictures to determine to which of these groups, or urban tribes, you belong. So far, the algorithm is 48 percent accurate on average. That's better than chance -- which gets answers right only 9 percent of the time.
Online tool aids clinicians' efforts to treat injured workers
A research team has created a tablet- and mobile-ready tool that predicts rehabilitation treatments for injured workers.
Stripped mobile phone camera turned into mini-microscope for low-cost diagnostics
Simple imaging devices modified to inexpensive mini-microscopes are the new weapon in fight against tropical infectious diseases, show researchers.
Researchers create brand associations by mining millions of images from social media
The images people share on social media -- photos of favorite products and places, or of themselves at bars, sporting events and weddings -- could be valuable to marketers assessing their customers' "top-of-mind" attitudes toward a brand. Researchers have taken a first step toward this capability in a new study in which they analyzed five million such images.
