The population of San Jose in 1778 was just 68 people. Many people came to California looking for gold. Unfortunately, most of them didn’t find any, but decided to stay here anyway and become farmers. By and large they grew fruit – apples, pears, cherries, apricots, peaches, and in particular plums which were dried and turned into prunes. Even nearly two hundred years later, the population of San Jose was only 95,000 in 1950.
Today, of course, San Jose is the “capital” of Silicon Valley which in turn is the tech capital of the world. This all began with Dave Packard and Bill Hewlett who, encouraged by the Dean of Engineering at Stanford University, Frederick Terman, started their own electronics business in a one car garage in Palo Alto in 1938 with capital of $538.00. Their first product was an audio oscillator and Walt Disney Studios bought eight of them to test the sound systems in theaters that were going to show the first film using stereophonic sound.
How Silicon Valley, as it is now known, has changed! Today the population of San Jose is just over 1 million and in the summer there is an influx of interns all seeking San Jose short term housing. If you are visiting San Jose on business and will be in need of San Jose short term housing yourself, the time to start looking is now.
