This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian and Jim discuss the computing industry without the bachelor’s degree (B.S.). We discuss the recently increasing trend of major tech companies doing away with degree requirements for top software engineering positions. We evaluate the pros and cons of university value propositions, co-ops/work studies, internships, and apprenticeships and discuss which jobs seem best tailored with-in the field for these backgrounds. As demand for these positions continues to grow, we also discuss the ways in which the job is evolving itself with the advancement of automation and cloud computing, which is letting developers at companies focus more on core business systems and less on infrastructure pasta. We wrap up with a quick discussion on remote desktop solutions for the average guy in response to our listener questions received. Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future! Christian Johnson will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does. Support the Average Guy: WANT TO SUBSCRIBE?
