Software is increasingly becoming a very important and crucial contributor to our everyday lives. In addition to the use of software in the office, home, school and businesses, software is now being embedded in all types of devices and equipment, from small mobiles to cars and airplanes. The software industry has very unique features, quite different from other industries and requires highly skilled practitioners and developers to cope with the ever rising demand for high quality software systems. Recent analysis revealed that only some western countries have the necessary skills to build mission-critical large-scale software systems. Even in these countries, the shortage in these skills is still big and the demand for skilled software engineers will continue to rise. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, “computer software engineers are projected to be one of the fastest growing occupations over the 200414- period,›› and software engineers, with starting salaries currently ranging from $63,250 to $92,750 per year, are clearly in demand”.
