Posted by Bevas Logistics MEMBER18 Sep 4:20 pmApapa, Lagos

Applications programmers write code for software applications (or ‘apps’). These can be developed for different operating systems, such as Windows, Mac, Android or Chrome. They can also be written for a particular platform, such as a computer, smartphone or tablet.

Many programmers choose to specialise in a particular area such as office programs, educational software or entertainment software. For larger applications, programmers may work in a team to complete different aspects of the system. Other tasks include:

researching and examining current systems
talking to users to find out their requirements
deciding what functions the application should perform
writing appropriate code to ensure that the application performs its functions effectively
testing the application and correcting any problems that arise
agreeing proposals
writing software and operating manuals
making appropriate modifications to existing applications, including updates and repairs

Qualifications and training required

Training is normally provided to newly employed graduates and those with a HND, but computer literacy and familiarity with programming languages and general software are usually essential. Consequently,prefer graduates with a degree or HND in an appropriate subject such as IT, computer science, software engineering, maths or physics. For graduates without a relevant qualification, a postgraduate IT or computing-based course can be beneficial. Alternatively, there are many part-time programming and computing short courses available.

A meticulous and logical mind
