Everyone is talking about the neverending talent gap, but we don’t spend enough time talking about the knowledge gap. Over 70% of developers are learning a new technology at least once a year. That means, by the time someone graduates from college or university, the latest developer language or technology could have changed at least 4 times. Traditional educational institutions cannot keep up with innovation. This is reflected in ~60% of developers learning to code from online resources. Stack Overflow CEO Prashanth Chandrasekar believes addressing the global knowledge gap is two-pronged: we must build a culture of lifelong learning at work and democratize knowledge for all. In this talk, Prashanth will break down how to upskill workforces at scale and why democratizing information unlocks innovation we can all benefit from.

This session is presented by Stack Overflow.
