Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is just a conference ad, so you should ignore most of the content, and focus in on the diagram illustrated (large version here) on emerging software trends and innovations. I cover most of these topics in OLDaily; it's easier to say which ones I don't cover (specifically: anything to do with Java (just not interested), Rust (because I haven't learned it yet), WASM (ditto), eBPF and Kafka). That is not to say I am claiming to be an expert in the rest, or even to have any sort of detailed knowlege. No, it's just to say I'm interested in them and think that there's something in there worth watching. Pro tip: if you don't recognize something in the chart, take a couple minutes and google it.
