I was trying to think of the most topical topic for me to discuss and this popped into my head because I don’t see it covered too often. How do you stay relevant? What topics are you studying to keep companies interested in you? Do you struggle with today’s technologies if you trained in the 80s?
Most technology coverage deals with technology and not necessarily people. I’ve entered my 50s and while I’ve done okay in IT to date, I noticed how hard it’s become to stay up-to-date and relevant as I got older. That’s why I’m curious if there are others out there like me.
