A Programmer's Future: Looking Back to See the Future
Pete Massiello - iTech Solutions

December 4, 2012 FASUG Meeting

This presentation looks back at the history of programming and computing. We’ll examine the skill sets that programmers required in the past, examine the skills of those programmers entering the market, and what is required of today's programmers to compete in the future. If you don't invest in yourself, your skills don’t remain dynamic, they actually slowly deteriorate compared to the market. We will take a light hearted look at what we need to do with our careers to compete and excel in today’s market.
