I was wondering what are the new trends or classic paths that developers like to throw themselves into.

Developers are curious people, they always want to learn something new, destroy something and fix it from scratch.

So I asked my lovely friends on Twitter and as always they were happy to share their thoughts.

Programming related

  • HTML/CSS/Javascript (<-- 1st most common)
  • The MERN stack (<-- 2nd most common)
  • React (<-- 3rd most common)

  • Next.js
  • Node.js
  • Gatsby

  • Trying to figure out the suitable rhythm that preserves my work/life balance
  • Sharpening the existing skills before going for something new
  • History (and reading history books)

I got VERY few (almost zero) answers about:

  • Angular
  • AWS
  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Kotlin

To be honest I thought more people were learning about these technologies since there is always a new conversation on the web about them.

What are you learning?

I'm focusing on UX research and design, video editing and some python.
