The 8 Hottest Tech Jobs of 2014
http://mashable.com/2014/01/06/tech-jobs-2014/

"If there's one job market that isn't slowing down, it's tech. As legacy companies continue to digitize and exciting new startups pop up everywhere, we're encountering an increased demand for qualified tech professionals.

According to a recent survey from recruiting company Robert Half Technology, 16% of chief information officers plan to expand their teams in the first half of 2014. That means right now employers are looking to fill positions for software engineers, mobile developers and IT managers — a few of the hottest tech jobs this year."

There are a few, according to several tech talent search firms, including:

* Web developers, particularly those with Java, .Net, Ruby and Python skills
* Mobile developers
* Data scientists
* Security pros

The two areas that I personally expect to see strong growth in 2014 are Android app development and big data. As for actual studies, Computerworld’s annual survey indicates that the top three IT skill sets for 2014 will be programming/application development, help desk/tech support, and networking. That seems like a reasonable forcast to me.
