The Fly (1986). Brundle, while an "inventor", was also a programmer. Teaching the computer about the flesh and what not.

Any more? I saw that my colleague has also registered and posted in this thread, so it served at least one purpose...

Thanks for any other suggestions.

Dopamine. It's about a robotics software developer nerd & a teacher. Got rave reviews at Sundance, and 3 1/2 stars by Ebert.

Maybe not exactly a programmer, but Spencer Tracy in The Desk Set. He's the engineer responsible for computerizing the research department of a TV network. Pretty early for computers to be the main theme of a movie also (1957).

You've all overlooked the master of all computer programmers - Dr. Charles Forbin in the great Colossus: The Forbin Project.
