The Internet of Things promises to be a job bonanza for developers, and coders can expect plenty of work at very good pay, according to Michael Rasalan, a director at California-based developer research company Evans Data Corp.
But there’s a catch: To get the best jobs, you’ll need the right skills and plenty of experience.
Most developers are already on the right path to acquiring that mix of skills and experience. An Evans Data survey in July found that 17 percent of the developers contacted were already working on applications for connected devices, while an additional 23 percent expected to begin working on them in the next six months.
Another survey by VisionMobile, a London-based research company, found that more than 50 percent of mobile developers are working on IoT projects, mostly as side projects to their day jobs. VisionMobile expects that the number of developers working on IoT applications will increase fivefold over the next five years.
As a developer, you want to put yourself in the best position possible to benefit from this IoT boom. Here’s a look at the skills you need to acquire and where to find these jobs.
