    Is it only IT and Telecoms?

    I have a friend whose son is doing his BBA, was hoping he'd find some direction, poor child has no clue what to do.

    What the heck do these software developers actually do that they are in such demand in a country like Sa, when did silicone Valley hit Sandton and soweto?

    A friend develops software. He does the work here, travels to some arb country where he meets up with his client.

    They spend time in a locked room, each of them with a laptop, where they exchange/tweak, or whatever they do.

    I'm not exaggerating - two of them in a locked room.

    Not just riveting by itself, but if combined with other craftsman skills, it can be quite sought after.

    Well if these types of skills remain in demand for the next 15 years it means all the competition has been eliminated in my field. This will allow me to live like a king

    I do have a very humble job, but without me .... Then again someone has to write the firmware for the protection relays too...

    Software development is such a broad term actually.

    There are many variables.

    I would actually like to see more detail on in which languages; sectors of the market; size of the organisations who require these developers.

    What do I need to do, to become more relevant in this environment?

    Or am I just too old and outdated to be relevant?
