Nowadays computers are used almost everywhere. We can find computers in places like pharmacies, restaurants, and stores. All the procedures used to be done manually but now they use computer programs to generate more productivity, more efficiency and to avoid errors. These needs led to the search for computer programmers.

A computer programmer, also known as a software developer, is the person who designs, tries, examines and implements applications in a company. These applications can be Web Development, Desktop, Database Developer or Analyst.

Computer programming is a very challenging career because you have to study the latest languages. The more languages that you can use, and the more experience that you include in your Computer Programmer Resume, the more you get paid.

The average starting salary for a computer programmer is around 50 to 60 thousand dollars per year, while senior programmers can make more than 120 thousand dollars in the same period of time.
