My daughter needs to interview a computer programmer for a school report...

(1/2) > >>

Hello all, my name is gally.
My daughters school is asking them about what careers they are interested in and she chose computer programming. Her teacher wants her to now interview a computer programmer....

Our problem is, that she knows of no programmers right her in her hometown that she can interview. I had her write to several colleges to inquire if any of them could help her out with this, they all told her no and to search online.  I suggested she try here.  I'm not sure if this is even the place to be asking but at this point we are at a loss as to where to turn. I realize this is 'software' programing but I'm hoping that maybe someone here may know or have an idea of where she may be able to find a computer programmer that might be willing to be interviewed.  Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to provide.


Hey Gally,

Does this need to be an in-person interview or will over the 'Net work?

I'm not currently working as a programmer, but there are many fine folks here that make a living (or at least beer money) programming. 

You've probably come to the right place. 

Hi Rover,

The interview can be in person, or online.  I, myself, love computers but when it comes to any kind of programming, i'm all thumbs, lol.  My son is taking programming also but my daughters teacher said he won't work for the interview because he's just taking classes, not officially a programmer yet  >:(   lol

and yes, you are right, there are many fine people here and we probably should have come here in the first place.

Thank you!

I would say to ask mouser, the site owner/admin, although he seems quite busy lately. He is a very nice fellow though and a great programmer, so it could be worth a try. No harm in asking, right?

Maybe an option is to start a thread with the questions posted and see who chimes in.  Then let people post their responses to the questions.
