Silicon Valley Computer Engineers In Demand

SAN JOSE (CBS 5) — A shortage of talented engineers is driving up engineering salaries in Silicon Valley.

Experts said the shortage has been created in part by the explosive growth of companies like Facebook and Zynga.

Another key factor is the sheer number of Web companies to spring into existence and raise funding, making top-notch software developers a scarce resource these days.
