The future of CI

The community can embrace it and encourage its development, which will give it a higher profile, for sure, but that profile isn't necessarily seen or felt by the academic or government leadership.

I suspect it might take a local (to BCIT) large employer to tell BCIT that they want to see open source in the curriculum before they "see the light". Devops, open source, IoT - those may be huge in industry, but their adoption in academia is slow and piecemeal, from what I have experienced. AR/VR is making more inroads, probably because of targetted funding from some of the players. At the individual program/course level, some faculty are getting great support from Amazon & Red Hat, but the faculty still have to persuade the larger academic community to embrace the tech.

There are several post-secondary institutes that are making inroads with open source curriculum - Rochester Institute of Technology and Seneca College, for instance. BCIT may get there too, I am sure.

In the words of one of the great teachers, "Patience you must have, my young Padawan."  I remind myself of that often Smile

Thats unfortunate. From the tech community here in Atlanta, GA, most PHP devs see codeigniter as a 'legacy' platform at this point. Not that it matters from a hiring perspective in our business, but I'm definitely seeing a decline in great programmers that are comfortable with CI. I wish there was something we could do to inject some love into the project.
Codeigniter is simply one of the tools you need to learn to be a successful developer. Always add more tools to your coding arsenal!
