Abstract or Summary
In my last Newsline article I posed the following questions, in response to Juha Saarinen’s article about the apps economy; • Should tertiary institutes be acknowledging the App Economy by way of offering courses and qualifications centered on app development and/or are they already on the front foot? • What programming languages are they offering – popular commercial languages that support the development of mobile apps? • How agile are ITPs [Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics] in responding to the rapid developments in ICT? A short survey was emailed out to the Computing/IT schools/departments of all ITPs who are members of CITRENZ [Computing & Information Technology Research & Education NZ]. Nine out of the 17 ITPs [53%], which included five of the larger North and South Island institutes, responded to the key question; are ITPs/your institutes responding to this [apparent] growing demand by providing education/training opportunities within the range of ICT qualifications that you offer?
