On April 30th, Code the Dream co-founders Dan Rearick and Daisy Magnus-Aryitey shared their thoughts in an op-ed with the News & Observer about what impact Apple and Google will have on the region after both companies announced their plans to expand into the Triangle. Here’s an excerpt:
This week, Apple announced plans for a $1 billion RTP campus, with up to 3,000 new jobs. This comes on the heels of Google’s Durham announcement last month.
That’s exciting news. If nothing else, it’s cool to think that some part of the newest Apple or Google technology may be designed right down the road by one of our neighbors.
But which neighbors will benefit most? Who is likely to get those thousands of new six-figure salary jobs?
