New Course In Connecticut Targets Dearth Of Job-Ready Software Developers

Filed under: Educational Technology — admin @ 12:37 am


A Milford-based entrepreneur is launching a training course designed to help with a shortage of web and mobile software developers — an issue that’s only expected to get worse in coming years. It’s estimated that nationwide, employers will need 1.4 million software developers over the next 10 years. The nation’s universities are only projected to produce 400,000 computer science graduates in that time. “So we’re going to have a deficit of about a million people who have the digital skills to work in web, mobile, marketing, and advertising — even TV, as TV becomes increasingly application oriented,” said Mark Lassoff. Those developers are going to have to come from somewhere.
