Computer Science Education Week 2016

Programming is the art of telling a computer what to perform through a set of instructions. Those instructions are written comprising computer’s language, or code. Now a day, computer is the new definition of our daily life activities. We use computers even for getting the alarm clock or texting a friend! Computers will continue to become a bigger part of our daily lives, powering the devices we use to navigate, communicate, work and play. However, in coming few years the world will experience different scenario that is a lack of millions of programmer. It is estimated that by 2020 only in USA there will be one million programmer jobs left unfilled. The numbers in EU at the same time is 0.9 million. As a result of the globalization process, we may also suffer an acute shortage of programmers in Bangladesh.
