There is no doubt that developers/coders are one of the most requested professionals in the market these days. According to a research made by the Michael Page Recruitment Services, software engineers and developers are the most requested professionals on 82% of the countries that the research covered (Brazil, USA, Japan, UK, France, Chile, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Ireland).
You may be thinthing “Yes, I’m in!”, but wait, you must be updated with the new technologies to be a part of this research.
So, I listed here some of these must have topics that I found (Not in order of importance):
- HTML5 + CSS3
- Python, Ruby, Java, PHP (Some are already requesting the PHP 7)
- PHPUnit Testing
- MongoDB, MySQL, SQL Server
- AWS (Amazon Web Services)
- CollaborativeWeb Enviroments (Docker, Vagrant Box)
- Frameworks (Zend, Laravel, Magento, Symfony)
These are not the only requests that I’ve been seen, but, almost of them was present in the jobs propositions. Anyway, this list shows that the professional of technology, specially the developers, are quickcly discarded if is not up to date with these new trends.
We must keep an eye on everyday news and never think that we already know everything. Opportunity calls people that are ready.
