Making a Difference in Tech: #YesWeCode | @DevOpsSummit @CollabNet

InformationWeek recently ran an article I wrote that describes CollabNet's work with non-profit #YesWeCode. This Dream Corps initiative aims to help young adults find careers and success in the tech industry. In the article, I address the growing need for new talent in the tech industry: "The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics estimates that there will be one million more IT jobs than computer science students in the U.S. by 2020. The software development field in particular is expected to see a much higher than average growth rate of 17 percent." As a software executive, I see how taking responsibility to solve this challenge rests partially on the shoulders of the organizations that are hiring technology professionals. In other words, we need to look for ways to train and inspire the right individuals to fill our job openings. However, the best talent doesn't al... (more)
