Developer Evolution: What’s rockin’ roles in IT?

August 15, 2018

The good news is that the US Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts 24% growth in software developer jobs through 2026. That’s well above average.

The outlook for database administrators certainly isn’t bleak, but with projected job growth of 11% to 2026, that’s less than half the growth projected for developers. Job growth for system administrators, at 6% through 2016, is considered average by the BLS. So while the news is positive all around, developers certainly have an advantage.

But there is another story behind those numbers. Powerful forces are driving change in long-established IT roles. This podcast examines the trends and technologies behind this evolution, and looks at what roles may emerge in the future.
