Computer Programming, Software and Sciences etc
This site was previously owned by a Computer Programming Science student back in 2001. Computers have a major role in the advancements of technology and always provide us with a platform through which we can handle various computer related functions.
Computer programmers and coders view a computer as something totally different altogether, because they use them to code various applications, programs, mobile apps and utilities; which enable users to incorporate in their business as they try to be up to date with the advancements in technology.
What the computer programs and utilities do
These programs and utilities help business and users to streamline their various tasks and increase on their efficiency. They ensure that there is completeness of data and other information regarding various segments of their particular industries; and use such info to grow their business. They also ensure good communication and feedback with their clients; which helps them to tailor-make the various products or services that clients are after.
Moreover, privacy of information, back up, easy comparison of performance, etc. helps business make speedy decisions; which helps them become sustainable and can easily mitigate losses. There are many benefits of the various programs and software coded by programmers to suit different needs. But they all tend to increase more productivity hence are suitable for everyone.
A little bit about this website’s past
I have completely different ideas for this website. I’m a programmer too since my heydays in college. I’ve continued with different programming projects since then; and maybe it’s time that I showed the world the programming abilities that I possess.
Soon enough I will publish posts about programming in various languages and the impacts of programming in technological advancements of the computer world.
We all have individual goals
We focus on achieving and strive hard to achieve our goals in life. Unlike our ancestors who lived thousands of years ago, today, we have so many benefits; which we derive from technology and can hasten us achieve our goals.
One fact that I can never argue about is that we live in the Information Age. Whatever that means, I must admit that leveraging on knowledge is the key that can help everyone achieve his/her full potential. It enables one to achieve the set objectives and goals. The need to gather information and communicate is basic in every industry because it provides the basis for making decisions as well as studying the patterns; which are needed for success.
Whenever I think about how vital technology is in our lives; I can’t help but reminisce of my college days. Back in the 80s when I was in college; which didn’t have much to brag about in technology like college kids do these days. We used to do things the ‘stone age’ method.
Back then I joined college together with a former high school friend
We were both admitted to pursue a bachelors’ in computer science. But I had other reservations. I didn’t see the relevance of computer science at that time apart from playing video games, creating documents and storing some information; all of which I was good at.
Therefore, upon arrival, I requested for an inter-faculty transfer. I felt that I needed to do something challenging like Biology.
Pursuing a Dream career in Computer IT
Jones, found that weird and no matter how much he tried to convince me to pursue computer science with him, I declined. Therefore, I didn’t fathom that technology would one day become pivotal in the job market or in revolutionizing the world. I must have been very myopic.
It was while were in senior years in college when I realized that I made a wrong decision. Biology wasn’t my thing. Staying with Jones as a roommate made me learn about computer and most importantly programming. He was a good programmer how had created several video games and coded some utilizes for PC. He would teach me some of the abilities that he learnt in class and I always felt fascinated by his work. Nonetheless, he was skilled and ready to explore different things.
He was a very jovial person
However, I knew that there was something behind his happiness. Apparently, he had been offered an opportunity to work at a certain IT company. It wasn’t an internship; but an opportunity to work. This made me feel challenged. Here I had reasoned that computer science didn’t have sufficient market for majority of its learners. Although, two years into graduation, he had already started working on a part-time basis. I felt that I needed a shift in my goals. But it was too late and I had to swallow my pride.
Fast forward 8 years later. I met with Jones at a business meeting where the company that I was working with had contracted and IT firm for consultancy on how to improve on the artificial intelligence of the company in matters relating to IT particularly on biological research, privacy and control of the IT systems and other instructional practices; which regarded the use of computers. However, I was part of the group selected to discuss about the evaluation of the contract with the IT firm. Guess what, the President and owner of the IT firm was none other than Jones.
How IT is Changing the World
We had a closed door meeting; which took about two hours as he professionally articulated how his company would help us in providing the various solutions; which we needed in establishing the best management practices and quality control of the research based programs as well as improvement of other areas of concerns. I marvel at his immense knowledge and really envied him as he talked about various computer programs that we needed for the various tasks. Most of these computer applications had been programmed and designed by his company. ‘What more success does one need in life?’ I thought.
We went for lunch together as we shared our memories. We couldn’t help but try the hcg meal; which is a great remedy for losing weight. I have been making it at home, and obsessing over it since then. You can guess that there was one question that I could not have failed to ask; how he made it to the top of the industry. For him to have been awarded the contract meant that his company was one of the best in the industry and that there was absolute confidence in working with him.
With a broad smile
Nonetheless, he went ahead to explain to me his challenges and ultimate growth as well as his future plans. He was very optimistic and made me feel as if I error much in life. However, I felt that I needed to undo the error. I sought advice and that when he made me realize that knowledge is never enough. There was still time for me to pursue whatever I felt was important in life. Actually, he remembered our senior days in college when I though about dropping Biology and going back to IT. But I overturned the thoughts.
He too reminded me, how quick I was learning the various class activities that he would teach me later in the evening such as creating video games.
While back in the office
That afternoon, I thought about making a career shift. Since I couldn’t quit jobs, I decided to learn much about IT online. However, there wasn’t much information available then like it is today. But I did manage to learn a lot of useful things and I’ve continued to learn.
Today, I’m a web programmer; and also usually contribute in the development of open source software and creation of mobile apps, though I still work on a biological research institute. The good thing about learning today is the facts that IT; specifically the internet; has enabled the presence of a wealth of information. Thus the learning curve is acutely large; and thus anyone starting out there can access great information in a short time.
