Hi all, I am currently a college student studying in Computer Science and have a dream of one day moving up to Alaska. Does Alaska have any kind of software development jobs or anything similar?

Not my area of expertese, but since no one else is replying, I'll say that there is not an established software development industry up here, at least nothing like the scale of the west coast (I used to work right next to Microsoft headquarters). There may be some development jobs in Anchorage, but you're more likely to find yourself doing more general computer support, IT, network administrator type stuff. It doesn't seem like Computer Science majors are a demographic particularly attracted to Alaska, so my hunch is that you'll be in demand up here. If you really want to be on the cutting edge of your field though, and want trees and mountains, you'll do yourself a favor by going to Seattle instead.
