If you're a software developer, and you're currently fluent in one language, are you doomed to irrelevancy? Is it actually better to be a "jack-of-all-languages, master of none", or is there some kind of happy medium in between? And if so, how do you tell when you're in it? In this talk, a "polytechnical" programmer will talk about his experiences living across multiple languages, platforms, and storage systems.
You will learn:
- Answer the question, "Why learn more?"
- How to leverage what you learn in areas not directly related
- Avoid being doomed to irrelevancy
