I'm stuck with Java backend infrastructure development. What's the most valuable technical skill to learn in 6 months to increase the tc?

Data science? Full stack? Kubernetes? Mobile development?

Mind share tc?

    I only see Amazon Microsoft obsessing about some language. C# shop or Java shop. It’s either because seniors are centuries old and have never tried anything else and think language makes a difference. A senior with decade experience told me not to POC in nodejs and use .net for console app because you cannot step debug in nodejs. I died a bit inside.

    The most valuable skill is experience. And, it can’t be gained in six months.

      Technically they’d have gained 6 months of experience 🙂

    When we hire we developers we value C++ knowledge and experience the most. I recommend that. I think if you can be good at c++ you can be good at anything

      I think so too. I consider myself a C++ pro and I picked up Java 8+ in a day well enough to strongly pass the Netflix take home exercise which was ~1200 lines. Then it took me a couple of days to be comfortable in Scala. 💪🏼
