Engineers in the “Power Class”
According to Re/code, a recent survey of 1,000 software developers found the following:
• 69 percent of engineers say their role is “recession-proof.”
• 91 percent say they feel they are the “most valued” employees at their company.
• 56 percent believe they will become millionaires at some point.
Says Barry Crist, the CEO of Chef, a Seattle-based company: “Today, being a software developer, it’s not apologetic. They’re becoming the power class.”
Good for them! Perhaps in the future, writing code will be something everyone learns to do in school (I see it happening!). But no comment on the “power class” thing.
