We can talk about really niche, upcoming technology but I would say when it comes to real job-market these specific requirements are scarce and even volatile at times.

Frankly, most people dedicate their time to learn a technology keeping in mind a high-paid job or to remain a step ahead of their peers and have a faster career progression.

In reality, today’s market-demand is a mix of really basic or core technology skills in combination with some new-age technology and anyone who can master one or few of these have a good chance to be at the top of the game.

First let us talk about the job market. Glassdoor in 2015 released 25 Highest Paying Jobs In Demand report, identifying top jobs that pay the most and are in high demand by employers. There are 9 technology job roles featuring in that list, no doubt the dominant lot!

But if a fast-growing lucrative career is anyone’s goal then the question is, what should feature in the learning checklist?

The most popular is TIOBE Programming Community index that updates the programming language ranking once a month based on the number of skilled engineers worldwide, courses and third party vendors. However TIOBE index is not about the best programming language or the language in which most lines of code have been written.

While Devpost Technology & API rankings for the 2014–2015 manage to do just that, since it is a community where developers can share their software projects, build their portfolios, and compete in online and in-person hackathons.

While I respect both the ranking, personally, I prefer the Devpost ranking in terms of what the community actually use rather than they know or search over the web. Let us take the ranking of Devpost and also show where the programming language features in the TIOBE index April 2016.

How to start?

First be more passionate, versatile and adaptable, this might help you to master a few languages. No one is a born developer with innate coding skills, so all we need is the eagerness and effort to learn something new.

Self-learning from free Internet contents is always an option. However web can be extremely hostile place for someone who is a serious learner and is time-bound to achieve something critical. There can be tons of information, some quite outdated, contradicting and even incorrect. There is no way one can validate these things, especially when you are learning something for the first time.

Some of the industries’ best instructors and an experienced team dedicated to deliver high quality training in SpringPeople can ease this complexity of steep learning curve.
