Want to be a Future Programmer
Where and by whom programming is done continues to change as the nature of programming productivity and the opening of programming to less highly skilled personnel. One prediction suggests that future programmers can be grouped into four categories.
IS Department programmers: these people who work for the IS function are in a clear decline, form nearly 2 million in 1994 to several hundred thousand by 2010; some people believe that these jobs are really being distributed out of the central IS function into business units, possibly under different titles.
Software company programmers: these programmers work for consulting and packaged software companies, and the number will likely raise form roughly 600,00 in 1994 to several million by 2010.
Embedded software programmers: these programmers produce code that is embedded in other products, like cars, office equipment, and consumer electronics; this group will likely dramatically increase form several million in 1994 to over 10 million by 2010.
Occasional programmers:  these include professionals and technician (accountants, engineers, managers, and so forth) who program as part of their main duties; this group should rise from roughly 20 million in 1994 to over 100 million by 100 million in 2010.
Programmers write, test, and maintain the detailed instructions, called programs or software, that computers must follow to perform their functions. These specialized programs tell the computer what to do—for example, which information to identify and access, how to process it, and what equipment to use.
Tell next time… logging off 😉
