No offense but while there is nothing wrong with learning Go, AWS, ... you forgot the single most important skill to actually boost your salary
==> becoming better at salary negotiation
*Edit: * wow my comment has hit a nerve. As I said I have ideas and a draft post on how to be less naive during the salary negotiation. Connect with me if you are looking for a job currently and want to try those ideas out
As a freelancer my biggest weakness is that!
This weakness is common in Full time employees as well... like me.. :P
It takes a lot time, courage to be pro in salary / compensation negotiation.

I have a draft of a post on salary negotiation but I'm procrastinating on it :)
share it :)
I'll wait your post then.
That would not be soon though.
I feel in this case that I have to practice the ideas I want to share instead of letting the others do all the hard job :)
