    In which year I have to start my career if I have less Programming Skills? Can I survive in Software testing with less programming skills? Which field is better between Marketing and Software fields interms of Salary and Job?

    hi i completed my B.E(information science) this year. I,m very weak in programming concepts. someone told me that software testing doesn't need much programming skills. Now i'm confused, in which i have to start my career. Is marketing field is better or software testing is better both in salary wise and job wise?

    If you have a less programming skills then you can start your career a year after completing your graduation. You can increase your programming skills by going to a better computer institute.According to your knowledge in the field, you can obtain better job and salary.

    marketing will be better for you in terms of career as in software there is high competition as highly qualified engineers are available.
    so go for marketing there is very good scope in this field only good communication skills are required

    hello,,
    to get into a software firm you should have knowledge of programming languages like C, java, embeded and even assembly..
    courses related to these are
    1> summer training program by HP which provides courses in diff sectors of software and provide you with valuable certificates..
    2> IP(image processing) courses by setpa, hp, gonue, etc..
    3> dot net framework,
    4> design by PHP, its use in internet and in server side clients..

    Dear Guest,

    Well, First of all I want to say you that being a Information Science Student you must have min.Programming Skills.

    Its irrespective of in which field you are going to be in your future, but you must have atleast some good programming skills, be it Testing side or Developing side...


    Infact, The Testing side you need not to have Professional programming skills because testing deals much with the Blue print of the system or the product...

    But whenever you are going to test some product or a software you should check out the bugs and errors of that System...
    So, In order to debug the errors, You must have to rectify them only with programming skills..

    Where as, in software developing side, One should must have Professional prog.skills because they have to develop the software using prog.knowledge..

    But if you have a min.programming skills then its not a big issue to sustain in the testing field...
    Because, though if you have min.programming skills you can overcome that with having good grip over the UML(Unified Modelling Language) and many a time testing field uses softwares like;


    -Load Runner
    -Win Runner

    -Static Testing
    -Regression Testing
    -Cyclometric Complexity etc
    To debug or to test the software or the product of a system .

    There are many jobs in the field of testing:
    You can get good salary packages at an average of 25k to 40k in the starting itself;
    For testing jobs,please send your CV to

    http://www. MonsterIndia.com

    All the best....

    Dear friend,

    you are told wrong, because there is a huge demand in the IT field for the good programmers. so you have to be a good programmer. you are not week in programming, but are not going to good studies, please go for the java, C++ and such type of languages that has a great market in the IT field. so you have to learn these language.

    this is not a force that you must choose only programming but you are asking for the salary then this software field has more job and salary opportunity then the marketing. so you should choose the programming field.

    but according to me the interest is most important thing in a student life. you should choose that field in which you are interested. so you will be the perfect in your subject.

    but the job opportunity is maximum in the programming field. please do hard work and make your future bright.

    best of luck.

    You should decide based on where your skills lie. Also it important to assess your strengths. Since you have mentioned that you are weak in programming certainly it is better to avoid the same. Testing job does need a candidate to know the basics of the programming. So its better you opt out of the same. If you have passion in the field of marketing then certainly you can take up the same. You can probably work in the marketing section of any IT firm. It will be good if you take up a MBA if you want to make a career in the field of marketing.

    No, it is wrong. You must have good command over programming languages to make career in software field.
    And marketing field is better than software testing field in terms of salary.

    If you have completed your engineering with computer science branch then its the best option for you to choose software field.There is so much

    scope and also requirment for a good programmer.So you should choose this option.If you are not good in programming then nothing to worry.You

    can be a good programmer.You should choose nay perticular language which you have interest and after that you can do a course on that

    perticualar language.If you will start from the basics then you can easily learn programming language.Its not hard as you think.Do regular

    programming.It will help you.

    If you want to choose any perticular course then there is many courses are available for you.

    You should start from the basics.Try to learn about C and C++ language.

    The other options are

    Java

    .Net

    Php

    Orracle

    So choose any perticular language.

    All the best.

    IDEA FOR PERSON WITH LOW PROGRAMMING SKILLS:

    >>FIRST DO NOT ESTIMATE THAT YOUR PROGRAMMING KNOWLEDGE IS LOW AND POOR.

    >>HAVE CONFIDENCE IN YOUR SELF.GO TO COACHING CENTERS TO ATTEND THE CLASSES OF PROGRAMMING LANGUAGE.

    >>THEN DO NOT CHOOSE THE MARKETING FIELD.CHOOSE THE SOFTWARE FIELD ITSELF.YOU WILL GET THREE TIMES MORE SALARY THAN THE MARKETING FIELD.

    >>SO FIRST LEARN ALL THE PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES CONCEPTUALLY.

    >>ALL THE BEST.!!!!!!!!

    dear friend,

    programming is a great field in which you can make your future very bright, you can do some effort of the hard work then you will definetly get a good job.
    but you are saying that you have less knowledge of the programming language, you have wrong heard that testing is easy then the programming,
    you can think a man is making the code then the other is testing and checking that code then this man must has to more knowledgeable then the maker. so nothing will be got without the hard work.
    so you should join the best institute of the programming language and get full knowledge of the programming.
    so best of luck.

    The Testing side you need not to have Professional programming skills because testing deals much with the Blue print of the system or the product.
    But whenever you are going to test some product or a software you should check out the bugs and errors of that System.
    So, In order to debug the errors, You must have to rectify them only with programming skills.
    Where as, in software developing side, One should must have Professional prog.skills because they have to develop the software using prog.knowledge.
