I applaud your positive attitude towards this issue, but it is kind of unfair that in the IT world, we can "never" be experts.

It is overwhelming the amount of knowledge that is expected from a developer to know/master!

But it doesn't end there. Even if you know MOST of the things related to programming (network, OS, cloud services, DB, backend, frontend....) still you need to dive into the business logic which is related directly to the business you are working on, for example, I worked as Software Developer in Telecom so I needed to understand Telecom related business logic.

We need to figure this out...After all, "we are the experts" :D
