Dean shares some advice on what smart companies can do to attract and retain the rising generation of developers — based on his 28 years leading Infragistics, his many conversations with customers and partners, and what he’s learned from watching his son do career searching in a hot seller’s market for fresh computer science graduates.

“It’s not about just getting a job and a paycheck,” Dean says. “They’re actually methodical in thinking about, is this somewhere I want to work? Can I excel here, can I learn here, can I be happy here, and does the company have the values that I share?”

Dean and Elden talk about the entrepreneurial, “street-smart” character of today’s young developers, what they’re looking for in their job searches, and how employers can shape not just their compensation offers but their cultures to bring in the best young talent.
