AI, machine learning, containers, blockchain, quantum computing, automation—as tech pros you’re routinely faced with C-suite or business leadership interest in an overwhelming number of emerging technologies you’re expected to experiment with, master, and adopt. Not to mention, many of these skills are considered critical for career growth and day-to-day job success. But mapping out necessary skills and understanding how best to gain those competencies can be especially challenging.
