Being a specialist is rewarding, but being a generalist could become a necessity for future tech. What tools + topics do you believe every coder needs to know? Comment below 👇

Thanks for the wisdom, @quorralyne.

3. DevOps/TechOps: all devs should know how code gets to production, even if you don’t get to press the big red deployment button. Development work is tied to ops work, especially with microservices architecture.

2. Machine Learning: automation affects nearly all areas of technology. Having a basic understanding of how your data is fed into various algorithms + the decisions those algorithms make will be useful in the long run.

Ready to expand your horizons?
Before you do, let’s cover off on the basics.
Here’s a few areas we think are *essential*:

1. Security: make sure you’re coding securely, from how you store API keys to the way you deploy code. You’ll be sorry if you cut corners here. 🙅🏼

Even if you maintain a legacy code base, your future self might thank you for learning about what kinds of tools there are out there.

Reminder: you don’t have to be an *expert* to be smart about something. 🧠

“But why does future tech require a generalist approach?”
Well, this community knows that our industry is changing all the time.

Remember when Javascript began its takeover? 🚀
Now, we have tools like Node.js + React Native influencing APIs + mobile app development.

“Are you saying I should be a full stack developer?”
‘Generalist’ + ‘full stack’ aren't always interchangeable.

But you always carry a sample of evergreen knowledge with you throughout your career as a developer. 👩🏽‍💻👨🏻‍💻

Generalist vs. specialist is largely a matter of opinion. BUT, there are some logical ways to think about it. 💡

Have you ever fallen in ❤️ with a specific area of coding + gotten stuck there? We have. This can put you in a spot where the coding world moves on without you.

Technology is evolving faster than ever. How are devs supposed to know what to pay attention to + what’s just a fad? How do we choose the right tech to focus on?

In this 🧵, we’ll walk you through why @quorralyne thinks every developer should be a generalist. 👇(1/9)
