What you've just learned is exactly the right approach, in my not-so-humble opinion. Back when I started professionally programming 25 years ago I would deep dive for years into specific technologies. The only time I had to make a major shift was changing jobs.

With the explosion of open source over the web you've got millions of people sharing ideas and trends coming and going.

When people ask me how I keep up I tell them what doesn't change: the fundamental concepts such as proper architecture and best practices. Along your journey pick up and maintain the best ways to solve certain problems. The language, the syntax, and the details of each framework will change, but the basics of good software design rarely do.
