Summer’s just around the corner in Boston, and you can almost smell the lobster rolls. 

As Bostonians plan their next weekend trip to Cape Cod or grab a ticket to a Red Sox game at Fenway park, there’s a season of positive changes heating up the local tech scene. The past several years have marked steady growth in certain areas — like the increase in the average tech industry salary, according to a report from Hired — despite waves of nationwide economic setbacks.
