Programmers - Universal & Memory Based
Programmers are software engineers who write, test, and maintain program code in order to create or improve computer programs. Universal programmers are general purpose, meaning that they can be used with multiple models or types of microcontrollers. Memory based programmers are specifically designed to work with a certain type of microcontroller’s memory and are used to create new or modify existing programs. Programmers first develop and test code, then execute it on a microcontroller or computer and ensure that it works as intended. They may also debug errors in existing code, update existing code, and create system documentation. In addition, many programmers specialize in a particular language, such as C++, Java, Python, or HTML.
