What do computer programmers actually do? This is the introductory page for a set of materials about computer programming as a career. Here the job of a computer programmer is defined and described. Computer programmers write and maintain computer software. In the rest of the resource, students can examine a specialized job title associated with computer programming: software developer. Students can view a six-minute video clip of the software developer as he works on writing software and debugging programs. He is the leader of a project using three software developers to write software. Students watch as the software developer explains and demonstrates how to write a program that prints a phrase on the screen when an icon is clicked.
