Applications developers or programmers typically write, test, and maintain detailed programs for implementation in desktop, network, and web environments. Successful programmers must be creative, use good problem-solving techniques, have a keen sense of business needs, and possess an excellent understanding of customer requirements. They must also possess the technical and functional skills to analyze, design, develop, and implement object-oriented applications for a variety of audiences. For those pursuing careers as programmers, application development skills and an understanding of specific tools and technologies continue to be the qualifications in highest demand by employers in the technology sector.
