Teams need experienced IT professionals who are passionate about sports to develop fan-friendly mobile Web sites and smartphone applications, and more. Read our article, or Cat’s script.
Good afternoon job hunters and welcome to today’s game between the veteran Technology Wizards and the IT expansion team, the Sports Fanatics. The scouting report says the Fanatics have been drafting experienced IT professionals who are passionate about sports to develop fan-friendly mobile Web sites and smartphone applications. So grab a bag of peanuts and your mobile because it’s time to play ball – using sports technology. I’m Cat Miller and this is DiceTV.
Leading off for the Sports Fanatics is Babe Analogue. He leveraged his C++ and .Net experience, along with his degree in computer science and problem-solving skills to break into the starting line-up. Analogue became a league home run leader after he built an app connecting smartphones to stadium Wi-Fi networks which allowed fans to view video replays and locate concession stands.
Analogue singles to left. Next up is Bobby Bandwidth. He’s the team’s statistical leader who builds applications that filters and delivers sports data. Thanks to his creativity, fans now receive player alerts, scores and stats via text message during games.
Bandwidth hits a ground ball into center and now there are two runners on. Big Eddie Encryption steps up to the plate. Encryption spent a year in the minors where he learned mobile operating languages like Objective C, Xcode, CSS and Java. He was elected to the all-star team after he designed a personalized mobile app that broadcasts live scoring clips, on-demand videos and streams live games.
Encryption takes strike one. Encryption comes from a big sports family. His brother builds mobile soccer applications and his cousin works for the NFL. Here’s the pitch.
Encryption lines into right field and now the bases are loaded with clean-up man Herbie Handsfree coming up. Handsfree was recruited from the sports and entertainment division of a major tech firm where he designed a stadium system that feeds hi-definition monitors and IPTV phones with on-demand video replays and touch-screen concessions.
Wow, a grand slam! The Sports Fanatics lead the Technology Wizards four to nothing. It just goes to show that all you need is a little passion and tech experience to have a fantasy career in sports technology.
