Computer literacy describes a level of general knowledge and proficiency one has with computers and related technologies, such as software, hardware, operating systems, and typing skills. While computer literacy usually refers to the ability to run and navigate applications, it may also include understanding and writing the code used in computer programming.

Although this proficiency is important, it may not necessarily qualify an individual to work in a specific computer-related field. For instance, highly-specialized jobs like programming databases or developing microprocessors.
