Costa Rica is one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the world today, and a larger and more vibrant IT community than anywhere in the U.S. outside of Silicon Valley. A highly educated, bilingual population has afforded Costa Rica the highest per capita IT export in the world and recently hosted the international IT standards meeting of the OMG - the "Olympics" of the IT world. Costa Rica is where not only Disney and Nickelodeon go to develop their digital products and services, but also Amazon, Intel, Hewlett Packard, Procter & Gamble and others who have moved major tech divisions there. These companies gravitate there today due to the short supply of master level IT talent in the US and the and the abundance of them in Costa Rica. The lower cost of business in Costa Rica further translates to these US and international companies being able to purchase more time from master level IT people on each project, instead of suffering with generally lower level IT as is currently the case in the US.
