New York is an increasingly attractive city for tech companies, but it's missing one thing: Web Developers.
The tech landscape changes at lightning speed. Developers who have built competencies in desktop, web, mobile will need to learn wearable technologies very soon. With the introduction of iOS 8, programmers now have unprecedented access to all aspects of a person’s life – the home (through HomeKit), human bodies (HealthKit), biometrics (Touch ID), and much more. These innovations open up the opportunity for entrepreneurs to create innovative, first to market products in these areas. However, to create a software product, you of course need to learn how to program.
With an organization like BrainStation, we are empowered to provide education at the pace that matches the pace of technology. For example, at a traditional certificate college in Canada, any curriculum requires the approval of the government & can be based on rubrics that are several years old. BrainStation isn’t constrained by these limitations, and can provide real-time education.
I have the flexibility of changing the curriculum to include Swift within two weeks, which wouldn’t be possible at other schools. The real winners in this equation are the students – as the market evolves, they get the latest and best information to improve their career prospects and their lives.
