Coincicentally I just got a newsletter from a headhunter and it was discussing the tech skills most in demand. Here's #1 on the list

1) Augmented reality developer
This position may sound space age, but many of today's companies have an urgent need for IT workers with augmented reality skills, mostly due to their part in popular mobile applications.

"Although augmented reality apps run the gamut from interactive map overlays and virtual showrooms to massive multiplayer king of the hill titles and the like, each piece of software hones in on smartphone GPS and camera functionality to create a more immersive experience," explained Digital Trends.

The typical salary for this type of developer is anywhere from $115,000 to $130,000 USD (~$125,000 to $141,000 CAD).
