Software programmers,sagittarius programmers,digital nomads and others, are increasingly the future of the workforce.
According to the latest data from the Software and Communications Industry Association (SCIA), software developers have been the fastest growing industry in the US since 2009, with an average of 7.6 percent growth in the past five years.
That number is expected to reach 8 percent this year.
“I think we’re at the tipping point of the software-as-a-service revolution,” says Mark Osterloh, a software developer and founder of the startup Code Academy.
“Software is now so pervasive, it’s in almost every part of our lives.”
Osterlough is a software-developer by training.
He started coding at the age of 13, when he was asked to help build a game for a mobile app, which was developed for the iPhone.
His first coding job was at Disney’s Imagination Lab, where he worked on games for the Disney Channel and Disney Junior.
He was promoted to a senior software developer at Disney.
At Disney, Osterhos first job involved creating a web interface for the entertainment giant.
His main task was to create a front-end for Disney Mobile.
In the process, he created a unique software interface for Disney.
Disney is a huge company, and it has a lot of money to burn.
Its revenues for the last three fiscal years were more than $1.7 trillion, according to the US Department of Commerce.
That was up from $1 trillion in the same period a year ago.
In 2013, Disney had a net loss of $1 billion.
“We’ve had an extremely competitive market,” Osterhloh says.
“You see it everywhere.
Companies are building all sorts of things that they think they can charge $20 a month for, but they can’t because they’re selling for $10 or $20.
It doesn’t matter.”
While software has become more common in the workplace, Osters passion for programming has been his calling card since he was a kid.
Osterlich says his childhood fascination with computers led him to become a programmer.
“My dad was a computer programmer, and he taught me to program,” he says.
When he was 16, Oesterloh left Disney to go to MIT.
He joined the company in the early 2000s, and his main job was to help with a lot the company’s business operations.
“I was always a nerd,” Osters says.
But he says he had no intention of making a career out of it.
Osters first software job involved writing software for Disney’s new mobile app.
In 2010, he left Disney for Microsoft, where Microsoft was hiring software developers to help it build its Windows 10 mobile operating system.
Microsoft has been hiring programmers for several years now.
It employs more than 40,000 people across the US, and is one of the largest companies in the world.
For the past several years, Microsoft has been experimenting with software development and has been building software for the Xbox.
Microsoft is also developing software for Android, iOS, and other mobile platforms.
Ostrom says the company is seeing a lot more interest in coding because of the platform’s popularity.
“Android and iOS are two of the most popular mobile platforms, and they’re growing,” he said.
“That’s a good thing for us because we’re creating apps for those platforms.”
The software that Microsoft builds for these platforms is called “Android” and “iOS” respectively.
Microsoft has created apps for Android phones, iPad, Windows Phones, Windows Mobile Phones and other devices.
“These are the same platforms that are powering our cloud services,” Ostrom said.
Microsoft’s new Windows 10 app is the latest in a long line of software updates for Windows.
“The latest Windows 10 Mobile app will be out next year, and we’ll continue to roll out more apps for Windows,” said Matt Gurney, a Microsoft spokeswoman.
Osts new job at Microsoft has him building a new version of the iOS app, but he is still learning how to use it.
“It’s been a great learning experience,” he notes.
Microsoft wants to keep its software development culture as open as possible, and Osterlloh is excited to have his hands on the latest Windows app, called Xbox.
“Xbox is a really important part of what we do at Microsoft,” Oesterlloh said.
But for Osterllo, the most important aspect of his new job is working on new software for Microsoft.
“Microsoft is a company that I love and love working for,” he added.
“If we can do that for them, that’s something that’s really worth it.”
The next big tech company to hire a software engineer is Netflix.
The company has hired dozens of programmers for its Netflix programming and content production.
Netflix is a massive company, with over
