With only a few weeks left in 2014, many are starting to look at education budgets and attempting to maximize their allotment for training in 2015. In the past, many enterprise organizations have used a somewhat reactive approach to education. This approach allows developers and IT engineers to identify the courses they want and opt for tuition reimbursement or pull from a budget. While this strategy might be serving you well now, it's easy to exhaust budgets before the end of the year.
One of the most difficult things about recruiting and managing an amazing team of developers is keeping them motivated and keeping their skills refined. You want to make sure that they have the right tools, the right people and the right knowledge to get the job done. You want to encourage them to be motivated without overloading them. It's a fine art and can become very overwhelming at times.
In order to be a successful application developer and programmer you have to stay up to date on the cutting edge of technology and, in some cases, ahead of innovative technologies. As 2015 comes to a close we're seeing more and more predictions come out as to what to expect as far as innovation goes. It's important that programmers make sure that they are developing applications that will accommodate for these changing technologies. In order to do that, they must increase their knowledge base to allow them to continue developing in each space.
