What We Do

Software developers code the systems in computers. The ability to see this on the screen was made by Software developers. They analyze users needs then design, test and develop software to meet those needs. The code in the picture could be used to make a game or to make a website. Software developers are in charge in the entire development process for a software program. http://www.bls.gov/ooh/computer-and-information-technology/software-developers.htm#tab-2

Software developers are likely to see new opportunities because of an increase in the number of products that use software.

Common Questions

Q: Is it hard to understand the code?

A: Once you learn the basic code you just build off of that. So really once you've had enough practice everything seems to make sense.


Q: Is it easy to make a mistake?

A: Very easy. One small mistake can mess up the whole process. That's why you must be very focused when you code.
