Alocsin's Computer Jobs and Salaries Index

Updated on February 18, 2012

© 2012 by Aurelio Locsin.

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.

Network and Systems Administrators manage the methods by which computer systems communicate and interact to perform tasks in business, government and education. They are typically in charge of hardware, software and staff.

Systems Software Engineers create, test and implement operating systems and other software that allow computers to function at a basic level and support applications.

Applications Software Engineer develop applications that enable individuals and organizations to perform tasks such as word processors, databases, web browsers and games.

Programmers write the code that allows applications to run using programming languages such as C++ and Java.
