Yes, as a software developer. You can right now saying that I'm incorrect about my point of view, but it's something that I had experienced throughout this month. Searching for a job opportunity sounds like a huge task nowadays, worst if you work with tools that some companies think that are obsolete. Back to 2017, when I realized that I can work at Google through https://careers.google.com, I was happy because it was the company that I dreamed of to work for. But I always entitled myself as a PHP developer and Google doesn't use PHP and related languages like Hack HHVM, so my dream to work for Google went downhill. Throughout the time from 2017 to now, I've been improving my knowledge and experience in PHP and related tools, even knowing that Google doesn't use it. And I also I've been searching job opportunities that are related to PHP and its ecosystem, but I found an ambitious role but they work with Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Should I invest my time to learn Ruby and Ruby on Rails, knowing that I can work with PHP and Laravel in other companies? Yes, I should invest my time and is a must for me. I'm a junior software developer, with the intent to grow and learn with others developers. So, in my position now, all that I've to do is to learn all the possible things (especially in back-end & front-end development, because is what most interest me) that I can to get myself in a good opportunity to get a good job and not just trying to entitle myself as a X software developer.
As you can see in the Google role above, you can see that the last requirement is related to this post. I even heard that Google can hire developers that work with any languages that aren't used at Google but they've to learn the necessary languages for their work at the company.
The snippet above is from Shopify software developer role. They can hire developers who know other languages besides that Shopify use, but they have to get themselves familiar with Ruby and its ecosystem later.
In my point of view, what Google and Shopify (and other companies) are saying to their developers (and for you!) is that the technology involve a lot, and languages and frameworks comes and go just as they came, so you as a software developer should change your mind about what is your title as a software developer and to a better experience for you, you should try learn new things constantly and be a passionate software developer.
I'm now working with PHP for my personal projects, learning Ruby and Ruby on Rails and planning to learn C/C++.
These are my thoughts of why you and me shouldn't entitle ourselves no more as X software developer but as a software developer instead.
