Software development is a dynamic working environment where the ‘family of C’ programming skills (C, C++ and C#) are widely sought after.
Considered a middle level language, C++ and its counterparts are widely used throughout the software industry, giving programmers the opportunity to work within almost any area of interest - from finance to the public sector.
After the computer software engineers and systems analysts design software programmes, as a C, C++ or C# programmer you’ll convert that design into a logical series of instructions that the computer can follow. Working as part of project team like this in a commercial environment, most likely from inception through to completion, will enable you to get involved in the entire process.
You may work in an office or laboratory setting; or even telecommute, which is becoming more common as technological advances allow programming work to be done from remote locations
Employers consider a university education a necessary pre-requisite for C programmers, ideally in a computer science or IT-based subject. Those who have earned a PhD are also highly sought after candidates
Disciplines and skills include strong interpersonal and communications, as well as more specific attributes. For example, employers may be drawn to candidates with maths qualifications as well as technical skills if they are recruiting to develop a financial business application.
Employers often look for programmers who have experience in more than one of the C languages – so, both C and C++ or the Microsoft developed C#.
As software design has continued to advance, and some programming functions have become automated, programmers have begun to take on some of the responsibilities once performed only by software engineers.
As a result, some computer programmers now assist software engineers in identifying user needs and designing certain parts of computer programs, as well as other functions.
