This time we thought it might be useful to include “bundles” of skills. Past editions did not make clear if, for example, all CSS posts requested HTML as well. Or if posts requesting Linux proficiency were actually demanding the complete LAMP stack. Individual items were included: every time LAMP was mentioned, each of its components (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) were counted too.
Interestingly enough, our decision to include the bundle coincided with two interesting new requests, featuring for the first time: “Virtualization”, this time with Docker and Kubernetes; and “Full-Stack,” which for software development is the holy grail. It refers to a jack of all trades whose skills across usually separate fields enhance each other, which should make them exponentially valuable. It does not mean he can do all at once or using fewer hours than different specialists working as a team. Stay tuned to watch this trend play out.
