I am applying to school in Septmember and need to know what the difference between a programmer and a microcomputer specailist is. I would apprecaite if you could tell me what the difference is between the two jobs. In order to get into this course I need to define the terms of microcomputer specailist, and tell the school how this differs from a computer programmer. It would even help if you could lead me to some websites that might give me all the information that I need to do this. I need this information as soon as possible. This is an letter of intent to let me know where I want to take this career and what my goals will be once I finish this course. It would also greatly help me if you could tell me what kind of companies I could contact in order to find out the starting salaries and the what the job prospects will be in the next two years. I will greatly apprecaite any answer to my questions. I live in Edmonton Alberta

    Hmmm, I work as a Web developer/programmer, so I'd

    say the difference is, programmers write the code

    that tell the computer how to behave and what to

    do in specific situations, while

    microcomputer specialists would diagnose network

    or Web connectivity problems, operating system

    problems, load software, perform hard-drive and

    hardware maintenance, etc. Microcomputer dudes

    would troubleshoot general OS and sytems problems.

    Hope this helps.
