Emilio’s Answer

The software industry changes quickly, and how applicable todays trends are to you really depends on your field, experience, and education level. For young students who are just considering their career in software, it's good to be aware of what is trending, but I don't think that should be the focus. They will get a lot more value out of developing strong fundamentals, making connections, doing projects, and getting any relevant work or internship experience. Trends come and go, but being adaptable and having strong fundamentals will allow you to pick up new skills on the job and make you a much more valuable asset. This is really what most companies are looking for when they hire for entry level roles. The other thing to be aware of is that when you are this early in your career, nothing is permanent. If you don't like what you are doing, you can and should try something new. Your skills and your domain knowledge will develop along with your career, and most companies will help you build those skills up when they hire you. Take every opportunity to practice and develop your skills until then.

- Git / Github

Bhavin’s Answer

I would not focus much on the languages. You can pickup most programming languages in a matter of weeks.

I would suggest focusing on concepts and understanding things deeply.
A good resource: The 5 elements of Effective Thinking: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008JUVDUE/

Specifically, look at job requirements and positions at companies of your interest. This may motivate you to explore learning in those area and also look at the requirements -- take courses in those areas.

10 to 15 years back, you would see C and Perl in various places -- C has changed to C++ and other languages. Perl has been replaced by Python and so the languages you see today may be replaced by new ones. The concepts will help you transition to new areas.

Also, look at popular courses being offered at graduate level in various universities. Many of these courses are offered free at http://www.coursera.com and http://www.udacity.com This can motivate you to find your interests and passion and adapt to every-changing dynamic landscape of technology and be always prepared for the future with a smile!

Fiona’s Answer

Trending in technology: From my perspective working on enterprise software I'd say:
Information Security
DevSecOps
Cloud and Edge computing
Big Data, AI + machine learning

Trending languages: IEEE have SQL, Java, Python, JavaScript & C# as their top 5 (jobs ranking):
https://spectrum.ieee.org/top-programming-languages-2022

But I guess it depends on the company and the industry in my group we mainly use TypeScript (Node.js & Angular)

I'd say it's more important to learn how to learn new programing languages, because you are unlikely just to stay working with one for your entire career.
Learning the fundamentals of software engineering will also be valuable.

Farhana’s Answer

It mostly depends on the company. For languages I think Java, Python, JavaScript. For cloud Amazon, Google. Microsoft, Oracle. For framework SpringBoot, Django, Golang.

From my perspective If I can learn one it's becoming Easier to learn another one. Basic is the same, only the syntaxes differ. Thanks
