You are right about the technology consistently changing, and it's good that you realize that you need to choose carefully when learning softwares. When things change, it can be intimidating and feel like a whole new cycle, but sometimes the changes are not all that different from what you are used to. Some of what changes in technology is surface, and while it looks great, it may not do much to whatever programs you use. I meet a lot of people in my line of work who have been using the same software and hardware for many years (brand loyalty). They have learned to adapt to the trends and newer tools. The coding language doesn't always change, just the actual coding. My suggestion is to get with someone who has your dream job and find out what they use. If there's no one you know, check your local community college for a course. They may have something to get your feet wet and you may even get a taste of some of what is out there! Good luck
