“Nowadays, there’s all this new technology we can use to help solve the world’s problems and not enough people with the skills to do it.” — Steve Wozniak, Apple Co-Founder, Inventor of the Personal Computer, and Woz U Founder.[3]

Because websites and apps are the go-to for just about everything: work, shopping, entertainment, education, and the list could on and on. These technologies are simplifying processes and solving problems for us.

Software developers are the innovators of tomorrow.

As Software Pervades All Corners of the Economy, So Too Do Software Jobs.” — Burning Glass, a labor market trends analytics software company.

The software industry has seen immense and varied growth in recent years. Online postings for software jobs jumped 31 percent from 2007 to 2012, reported Burning Glass in its report, Software Is Everywhere: Growth in Software Jobs Spans the Economy.

That’s 3X faster than job listings overall. Equally impressive, Burning Glass noted these jobs weren’t limited to cities on the West Coast and Northeast but “dispersed throughout the economy, both geographically and across industry sectors.”[9]
