Direct Success With A Computer Programming Degree

Author: Andy West

A computer programming degree is one of the most sought after degrees in the field of information technology. While it is often mistaken as one of the easier areas of IT, the truth of the matter is: those who do not have an aptitude for detail or the ability to think in an abstract manner may not find it as easy as they assume it is. A computer programmer is one who, like other hands on vocations, must work with extreme precision and craftsmanship.

At the same time, many people choose computer programming because it is not a deep or multi faceted subject as that of chemistry, physics or other material sciences. While computer science has its own theories, it is not the center of the world for computer programming. Many enjoy computer programming for its physical, hands on approach.

One of the things that can make earning a computer programming degree much easier is a natural tendency for paying attention to detail. Unknown to many, computers are simple machines that will only do as they are instructed. A programmer whose job is to set forth directives knows that leaving out even the smallest part of information can cause major problems.

Another helpful skill to have is that of a good memory. The number of variables that go into a computer program concerning syntax, functions, bugs, solutions and much more can be quite staggering. However, the more information and data one can remember on their own, the more successful their career will be.

Some would say the most crucial skill for this line of work is being able to keep a number of complex working systems in mind all at once. While this will take some time and skill to master, it is one of the great traits of a computer programmer. This ability to think abstractly can help with programs exhibiting up to 1,000,000 or more lines of code.

Typically, a Bachelor's degree is required for many entry-level positions in this field. Those who graduate with a Bachelor's degree will have training in analytics and the implementation of computer systems as well as maintenance and even design. With this type of computer programming degree one may find themselves with career opportunities in software programming, network programming or website programming.

A master's degree in computer programming allows graduates to implement high-level software programs. Because of the ever-changing world of technology, they often design software for business environments that greatly rely on technology as well. While being trained in a number of different programs, those with Master's degrees also put their leadership skills into use as the head or director of IT departments.

Whether opting for a Bachelor's or Master's, many in this field find they have the benefit of one of the highest earning powers of any industry available. With such a heavy dependence on computers and technology, the demand for such professionals is in just about every area on the map. There is no doubt that this is a strong profession with a solid future.

This type of degree means always getting to be at the forefront of the latest changes. Programmers must also earn certifications in certain programs and update them regularly to keep up with the newest technologies. Many in this field enjoy the opportunity to continue learning and the ongoing training needed in this fast paced world.

A computer programming degree encompasses so much that many in this field find their career constantly evolving right along with technology. There are so many different areas in which to branch out and grow, there is no worry of ever becoming bored or getting stuck in a rut. Programmers have the fulfillment that comes with seeing their work have a positive effect.

What is jtag and how about arm jtag

Author: jitkasem

This story is about JTAG for arm microcontroller.

Jtag is an important equipment use for programming (flash) and debugging
various microcontroller series.This story is about jtag for arm microcontroller.
Nowadays normally used jtag is divided in to two interfaces. One is parallel and the
other one is USB.These two kinds of jtag have and advantage and dis-advantage that is
the USB-jtag is faster and it can connect to almost PC of today but of course it is
more expensive than parallel jtag.Parallel-jtag is an old format jtag but it can still
be used upon now with the PC that have a parallel port.

Arm jtag is also can be divided in to two group (USB and parallel).On the
market Arm jtag has a various name that is J-link , U-link , R-link.Thease kinds of
jtag is categorized depend upon the IDE that use for debugging and programming
your current arm microcontroller.As an example , suppose that you use IAR Embedded
Workbench for debugging you LPC2378 development board , in this case you much use
the J-link that is supported by IAR Embedded Workbench.The X-link that I mentioned
above is jtag that is not open-source and was invented by the microcontroller software
tools company. Arm jtag has an open source too. It is call OpenOCD.OpenOCD is one kind
of jtag that can be used to flash and debugging arm microcontroller with the free
software development tool such as Eclipse.OpenOCD also have USB or paraller interface.
To setup the IDE used for OpenOCD must integrate many tools together. Such as Eclipse as
the main IDE, arm-gcc compiler ,arm-gcc linker and the gdb server. To read more about
OpenOCD please visit –>



To select which Arm jtag that is suitable for you is based on the software IDE and
software programming and debugging tools you use to develop that arm project.But the normally Arm jtag
selection is as follow

IAR Embedded Workbench for ARM -> use J-link.
Keil MDK-ARM , Keil uVision for ARM (ARM RealView) -> use U-link.
Ride7 IDE from raisonance -> use R-link (Normally used for STMicroelectronics microcontroller series) .
Open source IDE -> use OpenOCD jtag.

ASP NET programming for beginners

ASP NET programming for beginners

Author: Vikas S

ASP net programming is a web application developed by Microsoft. It is a powerful web application that allows programmers to build dynamic websites, web services and web applications.

There are two important things to note about ASP. It is not a programming language, but a technology that allows a web application development . The action involved in this technology takes place on the server and not the personal computer. When on a server, it can interpret different programming languages including JavaScript, PerlScript and VBScript. It is also possible to mix these languages on the same ASP web page framework in order to obtain better results.

In order to get started with it, you need a web server and a .NET framework. Make sure the web server supports the .NET framework. It can wither be Microsoft IIS (Internet Information Services) or an Apache 2 with mod_aspdotnet in it. Once the web server has bee set up, you need to consider the text editor you would use. Notepad on Windows or Emacs on Linux are good editor choices. Of late, Notepad ++ has been used extensively since it has enhanced features like syntax highlighting, enables FTP and an integrated word count function as well.

Here is the series of steps in creating a simple ASP.NET web page:

  • Choose and define the language you want to use on the framework. Typically it is C# or VB.
  • Next, create a HTML form.
  • Ping this form to the server you want to use.
  • Any processing on the server should be carried out.

Return the necessary results to the client according to their requirements.

I am working as an asp net programmer in an
offshore web development
company. ASP NET programming is one of my interests and I like to educate public about it through my articles.

Computer Programming Degrees

Computer programming is one of the most popular courses that have been offered by schools and universities. I am one of the graduate students who took up a programming course which is Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I took it up at St. Louis College Valenzuela Philippines. I am proud to say that I graduated with honors. I got two awards when I graduated, one is best in computer and the other one is best in mathematics.
Here in the Philippines there are lots of it schools that offers programming courses like AMA University, STI Colleges and Informatics. They offer a lot of programming course like Computer Science, computer programming, web developing and many other courses.
