While it is abundantly clear that the cloud evolution continues at a rapid pace, it is imperative that one must prepare at the same rapid pace to take advantage of the situation. The cloud is well beyond early adoption phase, signified by even mom and pop shops utilizing the benefits of cloud infrastructure. Therefore, cloud derived skills are becoming a necessity for any engineer looking for a new position. Since that is the case, what should one do to make sure their skill set is relevant? The overriding answer, it is quite simple if you are willing to spend the necessary time.

The cloud gets spoken about ad nauseam. Any technological based web site is filled with articles on the cloud. The cloud essentially hangs over us like a cloud. With that being said, it has proven to be a very valuable instrument for corporations throughout the world. The efficiencies it brings to organizations are vast. One can speak to any run of the mill company, and it is more than likely to tell you that it is on AWS, Azure, etc. It has become so common, even for the least likely of candidates. Given its growth, it surely must have resulted in the decimation of certain tools that use to be the norm. Without a doubt, it has.

Is Python about to take over the once dominant Java? For years, the thought of such a question would be mystified. The perplexed looks on developers faces would scream, “Are you kidding?”. It was assumed that Java would always be the standard that all other languages looked up to. Mind you, this has nothing to do with anything technical. It is a question based purely on usage.

The numbers don't lie, and Python is creeping up on the heels of Java. As one can see from our skills watch, Java is still asked for in more job openings than Python. But, the pace of that request has stagnated. Meanwhile, Python has been on a fairly smooth growth trajectory, increasing by about 30% over the course of the last 18 months. If this trend continues, it appears that Python could pass Java as the most requested language in the next six months.
