Computers themselves, and software yet to be developed, will revolutionize the way we learn”. Every day billions of people use technology in their lives. Whether it is a notebook, a tablet, or a smartphone these devices have helped our lives. The people responsible for these devices are known as software developers. Software developers (or software engineers) develop new forms of technology to enhance our everyday activities. Activities like communication, research, and entertainment are made convenient by developers. Society has changed because of software developers and their innovations. That's why I want to be a developer.


I have always been curious how computers and applications operated ever since I was thirteen. Since then I knew I wanted a job that involved technology because of my curiosity of it. When I started high school and saw electives like web design and computer support tech I knew those classes would be great for my future. These courses take you through a computer's hardware and software and their components. Support tech is the more hardware-based class while web design was the software-based course. Both, however, are important in the software job field.


Web design teaches you a language called Hyper Text Markup Language (or HTML). HTML is the main foundation of every program you use. Browsers, office programs, media players, and games are just few of the many examples of HTML programs. In your job as a developer a lot of the work you do revolves around this one language. Learning it early in high school is very helpful in your process to getting this job.
