The latest statistics from Mashable indicate that 80% of children under 5 years old are using the internet at least once a week. That’s staggering! With the growth in the ways technology is creeping into our lives in every way possible the demand is growing from qualified technology professionals. My question, like yours is: What’s happening to prepare the next generation of technology professionals to meet this demand? In 5, 10, 15 years will we find our selves without the people to fill the need? I’m not sure, but that’s what we plan to find out on the next episode of Digital 411.
I’m confident that this is a don’t miss conversation on Digital 411 live 10am on TaktainmentRadio.com., Saturday March 26, 2011 (Bookmark the page!)
