Hi, I am currently in College right now, namely UCONN. I am majoring in ECE, or Electrical and computer engineering and this is my second year. I was on business tracking for accountant, but when I took my first programming class, C++,which was almost a year ago, I fell in love with programming. Right now I am just messing around with 3d programming, but would like to do something either with it or something related. Hence, my question is that, since I want to become a programmer, but I am not sure what type of programmer, could you post your job and a description of what your responsibilities are. My question might be personal and realize that you don't have to post it. If you do then thank you because you will be helping a person learn better of the types of programming jobs avaliable, and also keep in mind you will also help other beginners to see what they can do if they become a programmer. regards, TNUTTY

If I were you I would look at software companies and look at there careers sections and check out what they want for a programmer, most want something like at least 3+ years of C++ programming at least the ones I have all looked at. If you want to look at game companies look at big ones they usually can give you a goal at what you want to do. I suggest find your niche and make prototypes around that.

thank you for your share dashurc.

If it isn't too much to ask, whoever posts here, please put the languages that
you know and use in your job, so I and other beginners could see what we need to
learn.

regards,

TNUTTY.

Does this have to be specific to the games industry? Or does Virtual Reality count too?


In any case:


Title: Software Engineer

Responsibilities:
- Developing a high performance stereo movie player & tools
- Providing support for this player
- Developing plugins for virtualisation software packages
- Building tools to assist in data format conversion
- Maintaining existing code and products

I know C++ and C# mostly, but we only use C++ at work.
