I used to teach at various colleges in the evenings. I taught programming courses in Java, Visual Basic, Database, Systems Analysis and Design, and Web Design. This stopped after 9/11 when the economy tanked and college registrations went down. I have not taught any classes in several years.
I find myself in need of extra money and I’ve tried to get another adjunct gig at the local community colleges, but when I checked, the colleges aren’t teaching any technical programming courses at night. At least they aren’t at any of the local schools. I wonder if this is because of a lack of teachers or a lack of students.
The Computer Science and the Technology programs at the local community colleges is 1/4 the size that I remember. There are only a few courses offered beyond the “intro to computers” basic stuff.
I guess America will have to rely on Indian and Chinese programmers for the foreseeable future.
