The Amount Of Technologies Listed On Job Specs Can Be Daunting

I don't know about you, but it's incredibly daunting when I look at a Job Spec these days. Let's take a look at this Netflix job spec for a full stack dev:

That's Java, Javascript (including frameworks), HTML, CSS, AWS, RESTful services, Groovy, Ruby, Python, Scala and Ubuntu.

That's a lot of technologies you need to know.

And that's just the ones from one post. Pretty much every Job spec seems to need Spring these days. Take these screnshots from for example.

That's 63,094 of 82,686 that need Spring. That's 76% of jobs that need good experience with Spring.

Suprisingly enough, you probably aren't currently using all the technologies listed on these job specifications. You might not even be aware of them till you get to the job spec. It's not suprising- the world of Java development rapidly changes

It's not your fault.

You're probably looking at these job specs and wish there was an easy way to investigate these different technologies. Plus, we all like to play with new technology, it's just finding where to start right?
