no matter how many technologies you are familiar/proficient with there will always be a longer list of technologies for which you have little to no familiarity or proficiency.

it is this second list whose members will jump out at you most when looking through job descriptions.

don't let the second list intimidate you. every skill in the list of things you count as your skillset was once listed on the second list, too.


@djsundog Yes, but counter-point: those were 2nd-list skills back when your livelyhood didn't depend on knowing those skills.

@vertigo that's about half of my list transitions, the weight of survival pushing particular skills up the lists. not my favorite way to learn by far, but choices have been made.
