In recognition of National Coding Week, Geektime.com, a top media channel covering tech, startup, venture capital, internet, mobile, development and more – featured a guest post by Artem Mescheryakov, Senior DevOps Engineer at GlobalDots:
“National Coding Week is about learning the value and importance of digital skills as well as nurturing the increasingly important skill of coding. Developer shortages across the U.S. and the developed world highlight the lack of necessary skills and expertise in the field of coding.
