Technology has boomed over the last couple of decades. From the creation of the smart phone to high-level robots that help save people’s lives in the healthcare field, programmers have helped to create our future. And soon, every industry will be touched by these programmers. Programmers are people who can modify and manipulate computer programs and software. Programming skills are needed more than ever with many school districts implementing computer science curriculum into their school programs.
Here are three of the most famous programmers of all time who have helped influence the programmers of today.
There is perhaps no programmer more universally famous and well-known as Bill Gates. He is one of the wealthiest people in the world, co-founder of Microsoft, helped to create the Windows operating system that allowed the average person to use a computer, and is an investor and philanthropist.
Bill Gates wasn’t your average company founder as he was extremely hands-on the first few years of Microsoft. In fact, Gates oversaw every bit of code that went out in the first five years of Microsoft’s existence. Under Gates’ leadership, Microsoft redefined the world of home computing and helped pave the way for a technology revolution that reshaped the world over the next two decades.
