Learn is Hard, but learn all is so hard

I got 41 years old, I am a programmer, all my life is programming, C, C++, VB6.0, Php, Javascript, SQL, Ruby, Golang and more.

When I was 20 years old just with 3 technologies are enough to achieve success development application, like:

Languages like VB or Java or Pascal or C++, SQL (Structured Query Language) and a System Operative (Windows or Linux is last very weird), that is, with this is enough for development any applications.

Today is so more complicated because every day came up with new technologies, new paradigms, a new framework, each language came up every week new parches security, new stuff than learn, new stuff than change and adapt it, for example, a developer rookie have to know: a language like: Php or Javascript(ECMAScrip 2015 or 2017)or TypeScript or Ruby or Python or Golang or R or C# or Java(JSE, JEE) in some case 4 or 5 language, to they have to know technologies require: Javascript, Html and CSS and SQL is very basic which is a lot

Today to be a Senior developer is a lot more complicated than 15 years ago, these people have to know Desing Patterns, Methodologies Agiles, programming is a save way with standard of language, they have known many System Operatives(Windows, Linux, Unix, System Operativo Embedded or microsystem), minimal 9 o 10 languages(R, C, C++, Java, Php, Golang, Python, Pascal, C#, Solidity, etc), IA(Artificial Intelligent), DataMining and more.

Today is more hard be Senior because have known more, but the information is more easy get.

Thanks!

Good news: You don't have to follow every single new trend. Use what you know and be productive instead of wasting time on learning "new" stuff which will be outdated next year anyway.
