GP The Panel 5: Programming
This piece first appeared in the Guernsey Press on 26th February, 2019.
Q: What technologies should I be working in if I want a career in programming?
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.
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.
