The steady development of various effective, rapid, secure, and transnational forms of online communication has fuelled user interactions through digital platforms. This new reality requires fresh approaches to improving the public’s level of fundamental digital literacy and preparing skilled specialists capable of developing future applications. How can we widely educate and inform young people of the possibilities and risks of utilizing digital platforms? How can young Russian IT specialists participate in the development of the digital economy and global IT cooperation today? What incentives are encouraging young people to focus their personal development on the digital sector?
