I was reading through The State of Developer Ecosystem 2021 yesterday. If you are a software developer, I would recommend reading through the report.
This report presents the combined results of the fifth annual Developer Ecosystem Survey conducted by JetBrains. 31,743 developers from 183 countries or regions helped us map the landscape of the developer community.
My takeaways after reading this report were:
- GraphQL. I should have paid more attention to GraphQL and building APIs using GraphQL.
- TypeScript. My next project needs to be built using TypeScript.
- Go - Look at building a few microservices using Go this year.
- Since I work with PHP, look at moving more apps(previous and current) to version 8 and start writing tests using PHPUnit or Pest.
