By 2020, it's expected that 1 million computer science and IT-related jobs will go unfilled, despite the surge of investment in new digital services, cloud migration and mobile app development.
With the demand for skilled technical employees far outpacing the supply, companies are starting to review hiring practices and requirements in order to open the door for more candidates to join their ranks. At the same time, current and future job seekers are turning to non-traditional education to gain the necessary skills companies are looking for.
Dev Bootcamp and Kenzan are partnering to host this event and bring together NYC-area tech companies, educational resources and industry experts for a conversation about the technology skills gap.
