The 68 Technologies

The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) announced the 68 teams invited to participate in the 2022 Men's basketball tournament, commonly referred to as March Madness. These teams are ranked from 1 to 68.

Beantown Web publishes the Boston Web Tech Job Market which analyzes the technology job market in the Boston metro area. This analysis ranks employer demand for technologies based on the number of times each technology appears in job postings on Indeed. These technologies are ranked from 1 to 68.

Beantown Web has replaced each ranked team with their correspondingly ranked technology and repurposed the March Madness bracket to create the March Tech Madness bracket.

The top four seeds in this year's tournament are as follows:

  1. Python (Gonzaga) | 9,591 job postings
  2. agile (Arizona) | 9,115 job postings
  3. SQL (Kansas) | 7,095 job postings
  4. AWS (Baylor) | 7,352 job postings

The Sweet 16 winners are being counted down as the tournament progresses and a champion is crowned. Follow along on Beantown Web's Twitter page @webapprentices.
