IMPORTANCE OF PROGRAMMERS AND DESIGNERS IN PRESENT DAY WORLD.

Technology is something which started playing an important role in the world we are living . Technology makes our life simpler by developing various softwares. And for developing these softwares we need a programmer and a designer. A computer programmer, or coder, is someone who writes computer software. The term computer programmer can refer to a specialist in one area of computer programming or to a generalist who writes code for many kinds of software. One who practices or professes a formal approach to programming may also be known as a programmer analyst. The term programmer can be used to refer to a software developer, software engineer, computer scientist , or software analyst. However, members of these professions typically possess other software
engineering skills beyond programming. Computer software designers create and test software applications used for business, scientific, industrial and entertainment purposes.
In reality software designer and developer roles are always combined. Even in larger environments where architects have separate role, the designer and developer role is joined. The designer role (when being also implicitly developer) works with existing abstractions. However when new people join the project as developers, they often indeed are developers for the short while before they grasp the design style of the project. It helps to understand that there are two different roles as it helps to understand the time it takes for new people to adapt into the team’s or project’s way of doing. Software designer role is in action when the implementation-side design is done. Software developer role is in action when the actual implementation is done. Developers write the code that actually performs the tasks. Developers are supposed to follow the agreed software design rules to keep their code aligned with the rest of the code base. And to be a designer and a good coder, proper guidance and practices are required .

DOCC Kolkata provides a homely environment and proper guidance for any individual IT or non IT to become a coder and a designer.

PHP Programmer: Career Profile

Learn about the education and preparation needed to become a PHP programmer. Get a quick view of the requirements as well as details about degree programs, job duties and necessary skills to find out if this is the career for you.

PHP programmers design, build, test and debug database-driven, Web-based applications in the PHP scripting language. These applications are dynamic, and users can interact with them. PHP programmers usually need a bachelor’s degree in a computer science field, and they should also know how to code in other programming languages and work with database packages. Individuals may opt for certification in a variety of programming languages.

PHP Programmer Overview

PHP is a server-side scripting language that enables users to interact with databases underlying web pages. Most PHP programmers supplement their skills with knowledge of software that PHP works with to make Web pages dynamic. This software includes HTML code, other scripting languages and some of the essential programming languages. Working mostly with database and storage applications, accomplished PHP programmers are also familiar with database packages such as MySQL and Oracle.

Job Duties

A PHP programmer is responsible for designing and implementing website functions by writing PHP script code and templates. The programmer combines PHP with other programming protocols to design, build and manage such application packages as report generating protocols, games or e-commerce shopping carts. The PHP programmer uses testing and debugging skills to ensure that these and other Web applications are running smoothly.

Job Outlook

The BLS reported that job growth for software developers should be excellent from 2012-2022, with a projected job growth rate of 22%. The field of computer programming will experience more modest growth, with a projected rate of 8%. By expanding their knowledge base of newer technologies, such as cloud computing and programming languages, PHP programmers may become software engineers with careers that could advance into managerial positions. If you want to learn Web development very easily then PHP is the language you must seek to master.

A Tale of Two Web Stacks: Java vs .NET

For the last few years, I’ve focused largely on desktop development doing WPF and C#. I’ve dabbled a little here and there in web development, but the lion’s share of my web development up until the last few months occurred several years ago or earlier. Recently, I’ve been doing nothing but web development, in the form of webforms primarily, but also with Java and my home automation projects here at home. One weekend several weeks ago (it was “last weekend” when I started this post) I decided to upgrade my main machine at home from XP to Windows 7, and this required me to wipe everything and start fresh. Part of this meant that I’d have to port my IntelliJ/Spring/Maven/Java setup to a new machine.

I had ported my project from Eclipse to IntelliJ (which went very smoothly — compliments to IntelliJ), so it had been a long time since I’d actually set up a web development project in Java. Interestingly, it had also been a long time since I’d done the same in the ASP world since the work I’ve been doing the last several months had already been setup from a project structure perspective. However, given my situation with the home automation project and the fact that I’m starting on Feed paper, I’m in a unique position to document my comparative experiences with both, being in the position of generally experienced developer and relatively familiar with the technologies, but not practiced at setting up these specific types of projects. I’ve done this documentation below.

Before you read on, please note that I’m not in the tank for anyone or a fan boy of any technology, company or platform. I’ve spent years developing in both Java and .NET and there are things that I like about both. I’m a happy, equal opportunist polyglot and hope to stay that way. But for me to do so (with Java and .NET at least) would require both technologies to succeed, and I see trouble on the horizon for Java. I don’t like this because I like Java. It was a nice alternative for web development when Microsoft wanted to charge me $500 for Visual Studio and who knows what for whatever else I would have needed to write web applications. I like it because it was real, big boy server side code, capable of expansion to enterprise sites and not sloppy (I’m looking at you PHP). I like it because of the vibrant and inventive community of developers committed to improving it. But, I still think dragons be coming and Java might have a fight on its hands not to become COBOL.

UI VS UX DESIGN: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?

Learn UI/UX Design from DOCC kolkata

UI is the saddle, the stirrups, and the reigns.

UX is the feeling you get being able to ride the horse, and rope your cattle.

At least that’s what they used to say in the olden days. Rather, that is what I wished they’d say. Despite how simple that may have sounded, there are many complications and misconceptions when it comes to the differences between UI and UX design, and they cause the design community to go into quite a stir whenever they are brought up.

An interesting note to that is that I’ve found the people who work at jobs with titles such as Interaction Designer to get paid more simply because they know and act on the differences between those two fields (typically harnessing a little of both). And in fact, I think there are more differences in the people behind these roles than the ideas behind UI and UX design.

Let’s jump right into a standardized definition that we will try to metaphorically elaborate on. Defined very simply a User Interface design is the part of the product that faces the user when he looks at the site, and the User Experience is how they feel when they look at the site, aka the broad scope.

More pointedly, good user experience is the art of a drill going through wood, or a surfboard gliding through water effortlessly. The feelings those give you is unparalleled because they just work, simple as that. Though, in contrast, the shape of that board that helps it make those turns on the wave is good UI, and the surfwax on the top so you don’t slip off is also good UI. In short, the ENTIRE package is what makes it good UX, whereas good UI is always a very important inner-element of that.

Just look at that image; that is such a glorious illustration of exactly how much is incorporated in User Experience design. Now you can tell why the people in these roles have to be able to think critically and creatively on an almost constant basis. Though, don’t be thrown off if you are a bit confused thus-far, because we have indeed mainly related UX and UI design to physical products like the surfboard, or animals like the horse.

The reason for that is, this is obviously a bit of a confusing topic, and it is mainly that way because it is heavily fractured. That is, little pieces of one make up the larger view of the other, and that can be sort of confusing or challenging to a lot of people. But even designers have a hard time with it, so don’t feel let down.

Let’s imagine that we convert those ideas we already spoke about into the web or mobile spaces. The UI would be a series of buttons and how they look, and the UX would say that button should physically press down when you click it. The responsiveness of being clicked, and then having the button pressed down on a 2D website is so satisfying after all, how could a designer not do it? Well, it happens all the time, and I think we get spoiled by the ones that do.

For instance, I have been to tons of sites that have nice big beautiful buttons with shadows under them like they are just itching to be clicked on, and then when you do, they don’t inset into the page. No responsive animation, and all I know is that it makes me feel disappointed in the design or designer of that product.

Now, I don’t believe that is because I am some sort of weird button elitist, but instead I think it is because that is how powerful good user experience is. I believe that when we come into contact with user experience that is so over the top, and so amazing (as the buttons that inset are, for some reason) then we literally feel like all things should be that awesome. Of course, I wouldn’t judge an entire product because some buttons don’t press down, but that is a big part of how I feel in that given moment going to press that button.

There are tons of outside factors that influence how we feel on a website at any given time, and we need to do all we can to make sure that website presents itself in such a way that we curb all those outside influences into not being as apparent as the inner-influences of our UX is. In general, always think of UX as an umbrella that houses all the points that make up your product’s experience, in the now, in the future (though that’s some strategy), and in the past.

When everyone decided that true beauty online meant a lot, it really took a lot of us by the reigns (horses again, I know), but it actually did. We all took notice, we all started to become obsessed with these products that were designed with these amazing little UI facets that sort of have become overly worn by now. jQuery has had an effect, responsive media queries in CSS have had an effect, so too has the actual design.

It has been argued time and time again, based on all this talk regarding UX and Interaction, is how someone feels on a 2D website actually important at all? Well, if you are trying to get conversions it is; if you are trying to get people to be fascinated by your product or blog it is; if you are trying to get people to understand you it is; if you are trying to get people to listen to you it is; if you are trying to get people to spread your message it is; if you are trying to get people to do pretty much anything then yes, it is very important.

I’m sure you can tell that yourselves, but the reason we often have this seemingly unnecessary debate is that designers who are in one field really don’t know how to define themselves. And for good reason. Designers often end up doing a number of different jobs within the design realm, and that is why it is actually even more important to find someone who knows exactly what they do best and how they fit into the team – unless of course you are looking for a jack of all trades.
