Twenty years ago, Technology Park in Peachtree Corners was a hub for technology companies in Atlanta. Today, however, the buildings seem tired, with many sporting sale and lease signs in their windows. Occupancy rates are at an all-time low.
I am hoping for a resurgence of growth and investment in the area – led by the growth in Big Data, the Internet of Things, and Cloud Computing
Confession time… Although I was an athlete in high school, I wasn’t actually in the “jock clique.” On the contrary, I was loosely affiliated with the “nerds,” as several of them were on my swim team. Perhaps empowered by the 1984 film “Revenge of the Nerds,” this group of friends and other nerds across the country started becoming successful, and their revenge continues to this day.
I predict that a new group of nerds will rule over the next ten years. While engineers have enjoyed high wages over the past couple of decades, experts are predicting that software development will generate double-digit employment growth rates, with average salaries near $100,000. At Relus Technologies, we plan to hire 40 such people over the next two years, all with six-figure incomes.
