Counting chicken after they hatched Every year when we make reflections on global changes and trends of the IT sphere, we try to understand how we’ve responded during the year and contributed to the development of IT ecosystem in Armenia and what results we have achieved. The quick glance at the basic statics of the field shows that the IT ecosystem in Armenia is rapidly growing, involving more and more local and international players. The vast majority of them are mostly focused on outsourcing services of high quality IT products. Few startups continue to develop their own products. Both of these parties have one problem in common and that is the lack of high quality, committed developers at junior, middle and senior levels. If in case of middle and senior levels, companies usually develop them internally or headhunt, the requirements of junior developers are very simple: good logic plus knowledge of mathematics and basic working skills.
