A career in Programming / Software Development includes designing, writing, fixing/upgrading, testing, and integrating software to do specific functions.   It can also include implementation, installation, and support.   The amount of design input, supervision, and creativity is related to one's position level and years of experience.

There are a variety of tools and languages (such as C++, C#, F#, Java, Visual Basic, Cold Fusion, XML) that one can use to write software, and many different specializations depending on the purpose of the applications.  The field is constantly evolving - what is a "must have" language today will be obsolete in a few years.
