Computer programmers need a lot of training and education. They even need to take classes while they have a job to keep up with the new languages. Most people look for a programmer that has a bachelors degree and a degree in computer science. They also want someone that has skills in programming, they have critical thinking skills, and they can solve complex problems.
Programmers usually work in offices and they work full time. Most of the time they work alone but they can work with other programmers on big projects.
