What the Hell Lolas in turn was able to write several programs for new invention.
A new round of development, the profession has received in the early forties of the twentieth century, with the advent of the first digital electronic computers. They were created by the American mathematician, von Neiman. Program, made first car, was very detailed, and they considered every computed operation, each logical step. The unit had its own unique language, other than that the machine does not understand any other.
Further the creation of a special programming language has allowed to bring the industry to a new level, that is to make programs with algorithms, the special symbolic forms, which matches a specific language. In the development process was also devised special programs, transforming languages from algorithmic to native.
At the present time with the constant development of science and technology there are many latest developments in this area and every day the industry gets more and more development.
Programmer's day is celebrated in different countries in different ways. For example, in Russia and in Ukraine it is celebrated in September. In the Russian Federation it is celebrated 13 Sep, and in Ukraine, every first Friday of that month.
All members of the profession can be divided into three categories:
- Experts in the application programs. These people make up specific programmes for certain enterprises. Such developments concerns the accounting program 1C, or logistics – ABM Rinkai TMS.
- System programmers are employees, who has been programming operating systems, interface to databases of data distribution, networking.
- WEB-programmers as well, as representatives of the previous category working in network field, however, in a more global scale. They create different sites, web interfaces and dynamic web pages and so on.

Programmers are needed everywhere, from the banal housing area to a large oil Corporation.
What is the salary of the programmers
One of the most lucrative and popular is the field of programming. Advantages are high wages, social package, the opportunity to work anywhere in the world.
The highest salaries have Java and NET programmers, and on the contrary, less all pay for work of system administrators, technical support specialists and so on.
