re: How do you stay up-to-date as a software developer who is slow in learning? VIEW POST


I've asked the same question to older devs whom I know that have been programming for the last 20 years, and they told me that at some point, a lot of the new things look the same. There may be nuances between this and that, but the fundamentals and basics don't change that much. Pro tip: learn enough to understand the fundamentals of broader concepts, and go deep in areas that you feel really invested in. Most of these older devs that I spoke to are really good generalists, but are also highly valued for specialized knowledge in specific domains (like devops, security) that can be applied across many other domains.
