Just doing some job trend comparison from March 2016 and March 2017. Slight % differences.
Looks like Go is getting quite popular. Pretty much rest of them drop some %.
— Growth of JS in 2016: 97%
— Growth of Java in 2016: 63%
— Growth of Python in 2016: 54%
— Growth of Ruby in 2016: 66%
— Growth of PHP in 2016: 43%
–Growth of C++ in 2016: 43%
–Growth of C# in 2016: 88%
–Growth of Go in 2016: 93%
–Growth of Scala in 2016: 54%
–Growth of Swift in 2016: 262%
Still early stage for me but I do agree on all the points below.
1) Yes, specialise in a niche.
2) Agreed, exactly what I am doing now. Blogging.
3) Definitely! Got burnt out already after 2 weeks concentrating on JS
4) Yep, question why and how
5) Networking with friends and tell them what you are doing
