A Software Developer
Like a Computer Programmer but more money
Sean C. Passmore
Job Overview
Figure out what software a client needs then design and create said software
Decide how pieces of software will work together
Create flowcharts to guide myself and fellow programmers how to code the software
Document all aspects of created software for maintenance purposes
Collaborate with other programmers to optimize software
Education
To become a Software Developer I will need a bachelor's degree in computer science which covers a broad range of topics.
I will need to have a solid background in programming so I can determine what languages will be the most useful in creating specific software.
In addition to this I will have to stay up to date on all new tools and languages.
Finally I must have understanding of the industry in which I work, I.E. Banking, so that I can accurately assess the company's needs.

On the Job & Working Conditions

Recent Developments
The Software Devs at Valve were tasked with creating a new OS for their newly announced Steam Machine console which is very interesting. This new OS simply titled SteamOS, which will be released stand-alone from the console, was designed with Linux architecture and then tweaked for enjoyment on big-screen TVs. It sounds like a fun, well paying, job.
