Alocsin's Computer Jobs and Salaries Index

Computers have become more than devices to organize information. Among many tasks, they manage the distribution of power throughout cities, enable multimedia communication across countries, entertain with games and calculate the most efficient shapes for transportation designs. They consist of two major components: hardware, which is the physical box and its contents, and the software, which represents the instructions to make the box function. These components require the expertise of different jobs that must work together to produce the final product.
The following indexes Alocsin's hubs about the jobs and salaries in this field. The writing joins together in a four-part series to produce a comprehensive view of the computer careers.
