IT market is constantly expanding and growing. More and more industries need different IT specialists and less is left without the active automation and information systematization. In addition to that, there appears a necessity to update the already existing software.
Some industries are even impossible to imagine without IT, for example, marketing or automobile production. There appears a tendency to change old offline careers for new digital ones. In the rankings of the most sought-after professions, “Software Developer” position is on the 1st place. Let’s consider two reliable rankings to assure the demand for the developers:
According to the above sources, the most popular and fast-growing careers are:
- Software Developer (Annual growth for 253 400 jobs)
- Dentist (Annual growth for 23200 jobs)
- Physician Assistant (Annual growth for 39700 jobs)
As you can see, Software Developer is on the 1st place. However, with the increase of the number of softwares and community digitalization the following happens:
“The world is adapted to easy consumption, but becomes more difficult for development and support”
It means that the gap between those who use software development and those who create it is constantly increasing. It was much simpler to be a good developer 5–10 years ago. Now it is easy to be a usual programmer, but to become a good one is extremely hard. You need to know how to deal with the services at high load, use algorithms, math and to have the quick and inquisitive mind.
Taking into account that we like good developers, Mad Devs company decided to regularly sponsor the regional olympiad on sport programming — ICPC Northern Eurasia — The 2018 Kyrgyzstan Subregional Contest. We want to support the young talents and show the youth that IT is the future foundation for everyone. The participation in such events significantly increases the level of development and makes you believe in your career even more. If you are a student and read this post, we welcome you to apply. By the way, a lot of participants of this contest are Mad Devs top managers.
We wish all the participants good luck and glorious victories!
