Programmes for computers contain information and detailed instructions that computers must follow in order to perform all of their functions. Professionals with a computer programming degree are needed to write, test, and maintain these detailed commands. Computer programmes range from very simple ones that only take a few hours to write to very complex programs that take more than a year to finish. After the design process is complete and all of the specifications are met, individuals with a computer programming degree convert it into a logical series of instructions and commands that the Computers can follow.
The programmer would then code these instructions into a computer programming language. Computer programmers may also perform duties such as re-writing, updating, repairing, modifying, and expanding computer programs that already exist. After writing or changing a computer program, the programmers must test the programme to ensure that all instructions are correct. If there are errors, the computer programmer must make the appropriate change and then recheck the program until it produces correct information.
