Nationally and globally a desperate shortage in software development skills is being experienced. The following quote from a CEO summarizes the plight of Software companies.“I have to turn down work because of a lack of staff. If I could employ 50 developers tomorrow, I would immediately.”
In contrast to well-known professions such as Engineering, Accounting and Medical, it is very difficult for learners at school to have a correct perspective on programming as a career. This is worsened when they are in schools where IT is not offered, and in a region where very few programmers actually work. A lack of exposure often leads to learners with potential not to choose IT as a career.
