Posted by Yenlo on 28 Mar, 2017

Ever tried counting all the developers in the world? We tried, but we got bored and gave up. There’s just too many of them! Researchers with a lot of free time and a lack of fulfilling jobs say the world has around 30 million skilled IT professionals, including 18,5 million professional and amateur developers.
