As a senior Backend dev, you already know how quickly the tech world evolves. Keeping up by acquiring new skills is crucial for your job security and fulfillment, but that’s often easier said than done. Studies show that only 31% of developers are able to devote time to upskilling at work.
When it comes to choosing an area of expertise worth exploring, the dilemma is much easier to solve. 82% of companies need employees with machine learning skills, and 73% of business leaders view this field as the key to enhanced productivity.
