Whenever talk of the technology skills gap comes up, software developers are likely to be part of the discussion. In fact, people who are experienced at creating and maintaining high-quality business applications are among those most in demand.
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) of the U.S. Department of Labor, which is the principal federal agency responsible for measuring labor market activity, said employment of software developers is projected to grow 21 percent from 2018 to 2028. Thats a much faster rate than the average for all occupations the bureau tracks.
Employment of application developers is projected to grow 26 percent, BLS says, and employment of systems developers is expected to increase by 10 percent. The main reason for the growth in both application developers and systems developers is a large increase in the demand for computer software, according to the report.
