WHAT IS THE NEXT BIG THING IN THE ELECTRONICS/TECH PROFESSION?
  
What fields are the most marketable today, and how will the demand change in 10 or 20 years?

We know that TV repair is probably not the up and coming thing, although many reading this have started their careers at that very place. As times and technology change, what is the next big thing that is just around the corner and what skill set will be required for those preparing for it?
 
       
 
Once again, our friends at PCBFabExpress have brought you another round of Cool Reads! And don't forget, they're standing by to help you with your next PCB project!

That's it, Enjoy!
