Well the real question is longer than what we see on the backend view here, and it asks to think a couple of years down the road: what new skills will you have acquired?

For me, it's a way of understanding what are your personal/professional growth interests.

From a person applying to a senior position I would like to see some real interest in growing complex skills. From a novice or junior just some curiosity in learning new tools or techniques.

I basically want to see interests/curiosity, I don't really care about what specifically.
