New to this year’s
top ten: software developers and C#. Others are firmly rooted in the "hard-to-find" category, like security analysts and engineers,
database administrators and technology professionals with active federal
security clearances.

As a group,
folks in these areas make about $10,000 more than the
"average" tech professional, nationally. They’re also receiving
double the pay raise, compared to tech professionals as a whole.

More details here,
in this month’s Dice Report.
