By 2022 there will be more than 1 million developer jobs, according to U.S Department of Labor. This illustrates an average 21 percent growth from 2012. The growing adoption of mobile and cloud operating systems, along with corporate initiatives aligned to BYOD, software-defined networking and big data analytics, means traditional IT professionals and enterprise architects are having to expand their application development skills.
Due to the growth and demand of the application development market, Global Knowledge recently acquired DevelopMentor, a Los Angeles and U.K.-based company that has been providing developer training for the past 22 years.
Global Knowledge understands the critical importance of fostering application development and programming language skills to ensure that organizations of all sizes, across all industries can innovate and transform their business in the rapidly changing IT landscape – which is why we’re excited to join forces with DevelopMentor in order to meet the growing demand.
