    Systems development remains one of the most potentially rewarding professions, directly or indirectly relating to many of the top careers in Money/PayScale. As the economy continues to recover, recruiting top talent in technical corridors such as Silicon Valley, Boston, and Northern Virginia has become extremely competitive. Despite this apparent demand for engineering talent, interest in technical careers in the US has sharply declined in recent years. Many of the most promising young people are choosing medicine, law, finance-in fact, just about anything other than engineering or computer science. The paper discusses a compelling tech story that has five elements: people, projects, problems, products, and practices. View full abstract»
