Nowadays programmer profiles are the most requested ones by companies, but it's still a profile for many people outside the IT domain.
Today it's the 256th day of the year. That is, 13th September, which is ladies and gentlemen... programmer's day!, or the day that Valentin Balt, a young Russian chose to pay homage to programmers. A date that has certain meaning, since 256 is the amount from a code of eight bits that can be represented with different characters. Therefore 11th September 2009, Dmitri Medvédev, the Russian president by then, decided to accept Balt's request and declare that day as the Programmer's Day.
Today a programmer's profile is one of the most requested ones by companies, but still today it is a profile for lots of people aside the IT domain. However, its function is virtually vital since any device or IT program that we use on a daily basis has gone through the hands of a programmer. But do we really know what their job is about? What are their tasks?
First of all, a programmer is a person in charge of designing a website, codifying it, protecting it, as well as its software or IT programs. For that, they use pre-existing software to create an interface oriented towards request. In that domain, it is worth highlighting that there are different programming languages with their specialization for different themes.
"Maybe the "hardest" point about being a programmer, but no less interesting, would be that of staying constantly updated with the new technologies that arise every once in a while. The easiest way would be that of working from anywhere."
At Uniway we have a great team of programmers and since today is Programmer's Day, we talked a little with Bea Ortiz, programmer at Uniway for 4 years now.
