I’m reposting this because I continue to see articles like this one: “Professors Are About to Get an Online Education
Georgia Tech’s new Internet master’s degree in computer science is the future.” at: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324659404578504761168566272.html?mod=WSJ_Opinion_LEADTop that talk of the shortage of American skills and training in computer programming and related technologies. Again, this article talks of “A shortfall of computer-science graduates is a constant refrain in Silicon Valley, and by 2020 some one million high-tech job openings will remain unfilled, according to the Commerce Department.”
I write this article for any high school or university students out there, and also for parents and grandparents of those students. It’s a tough world out there for young folks trying to get a start in life, and if I can cause a nudge or two from my own life experience, then it will have been time well spent.
