Founded on November 29, 1777, as San José de Guadalupe, San Jose served as a farming community to support Spanish military installations at San Francisco and Monterey. When California gained statehood in 1850, San Jose then became its first capital. San Jose remained this small farming community until it experienced rapid population growth following the return of veterans after World War II. It continued its aggressive expansion by annexing more land area, and the explosion of the high-technology and electronics industries beginning in the 1980s further accelerated the transition from an agricultural center to a major metro area.
A tremendous amount of business is done in San Jose, and it is one of the top jet charter destinations for executives from around the world. Its large concentration of high-technology engineering, computer, and microprocessor companies has led the area to be known as Silicon Valley. As the largest city in the valley, San Jose has billed itself "the capital of Silicon Valley." Area schools such as the University of California, Berkeley, University of California, Santa Cruz, San Jose State University, San Francisco State University, California State University, East Bay, Santa Clara University, and Stanford University pump thousands of highly skilled engineering and computer science graduates into the local economy every year.
