Why I’m not looking to hire computer science majors

Mr. Gelernter raises the all too familiar issue of developer scarcity. 

“There is an opportunity to relieve the drought of qualified software developers that has driven up prices and is stunting startup growth: A serious alternative to the $100,000 four-year college degree wouldn’t even need to be accredited—it would merely need to teach students the skills that startups are desperate for, and that universities couldn’t care less about.”


The larger question in my mind is who is teaching our developers the so called “soft skills” they’ll need to excel in the ever increasing competitive work space?
