Outlook

Employment of computer programmers is projected to decline by 8 percent from 2014 to 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Technological developments have made it easier to write basic code, eliminating some of the need for programmers to do this work. More sophisticated software has allowed more and more end users to design, write, and implement more of their own programs. As a result, many of the programming functions are being transferred to other types of workers. In addition, programmers will continue to face increasing competition from international programming businesses where work can be contracted out at a lower cost.
