DENVER, CO - 06/21/2016 (PRDistribution.com)
Just as the war for technology talent appears to reach new levels of intensity, more companies are seeking new options to grow and expand their software development teams. According to CIO Magazine’s annual State of the CIO survey, 49 percent of CIOs expect to experience technology skills shortages.
To address these shortages, many companies will continue to pay higher and higher salaries in an effort to find and retain the best technology talent. Other companies are seeking alternative solutions. Many development shops are now showing an increased willingness to hire at a lower level and train for more advanced skills. Doing so allows companies to provide clear career progression for their developers while ensuring a talented bench of future programmers.
By partnering, 10Roof and the Rocky Mountain Programmers Guild aim to pair a company’s ability to recruit and acquire development talent with the ability to engage in comprehensive apprenticeships for programmers at all levels of their career.
The partnership provides a valuable option for development shops that need to hire at a lower level but have expectations for quick progression of advanced skills. The apprenticeship programs are designed to provide the skills and professional development that traditional universities and bootcamps fail to provide. Rocky Mountain Programmers Guild gives developers the ability to learn directly from the experience of top developers; not just books. Developers also work on real projects and learn by doing versus relying on abstract concepts. Beyond knowledge the apprenticeships provide hard skills in Codecraft, Tools, Technologies, Software Lifecycle, and Professional Execution.
