You’re on vacation with your family, and just as you lie down on the beach, it hits you -- you forgot to mail those bills your mom asked you to drop in the mailbox as you ran for the bus the other day. Not to worry, thanks to a software developer (and a nearby Internet cafe), your mom can pay those same bills online and avoid any late fees.

Software developers combine their expertise in computer science, engineering, and math to design, develop, and test software for home, school, and business use.
Software developers usually begin their careers testing ongoing designs, but with greater experience, they eventually design and develop software.
