Business panel: What you need for a career in programming
What technologies should I be working in if I want a career in programming?
George Bott, developer, Cortex Technologies, replies:
‘IT GOES without saying that programming has evolved considerably in the last 20 years.
‘Formerly the preserve of graduates of computer science or lifelong vocation in the trade, coherent in low-level languages such as Fortran, C/C++ and Java, programming nowadays has never been more accessible.
‘Doing it for fun or as a hobby is very different to doing it for a career. The strongest demand for skills is in Python – by no means a new language, but one that covers a staggering number of bases.
‘Web technologies, however, will be somewhat niche when it comes to business in the Channel Islands. A broad experience in development technologies such as C# and the .NET framework will be valuable. This can be future-proofed by learning what it means to deploy these solutions to the cloud providers such as Microsoft Azure.’
