The audience here is primarily technical, so I think this could be a good place to start this discussion.
I’m curious how do you decide what to learn next? Let’s say you’re a developer and you don’t want to move away from writing code. But at the same time you don’t want to become a dinosaur either.
I know “next” is a broad term and could involve anything. It could be a new programming language, or a new domain (ML, crypto, VR, …), or a tangential skill like writing, or something else completely.
What I’m more interested in knowing is the thought process there (if any). How do you figure something like this out, given you would ideally also like to align that with the path you want your career to take?
