"I skate to where the puck is going to be, not to where it has been." - Wayne Gretsky
I'm in the process of seeking out a new challenge in my career (no need to whisper - I've left my previous job on good terms and taken a nice long holiday - so I'm not sneaking around to speak to recruiters during work time).
While updating my CV I have been quite aware that once again I find myself without professional experience of the latest popular technology in my sector - Kubernetes ... and maybe Kafka.
It's very tempting to go away and complete a full-on course to fill in the gaps, but I've been in the industry for long enough to appreciate that there's still a reasonable chance that my next role might not include those technologies anyway.
So, for now I'll just have to find the right balance of revising what I already know, and reading about and watching videos about enough to be able to carry my end of a conversation.
