After about 12 years in the profession, I still search Google every now and then.. And although it occurs less and less, it's not likely to stop, since the most important thing in this industry, is not to invent the wheel.
Although counter-intuitive, a completely new from scratch solution is usually inferior to a tried-and-tested framework/tool/package/etc. that you use to construct a tailored solution to the problem at hand.
As a result, you must always be on top of things, and be aware to the progression of the industry, so you can find said frameworks/tools/packages/etc., and some creative ways to use them.
And the best thing is, that as you progress you can start publishing blogs or answering questions regarding your new knowledge.
