If you're as smart as the typical experienced IT professional, you have a critical mind that has a hard time staying engaged with pop culture and generic issues of the day. And you're WELL beyond the fanboy mentality of the young developer communities. Get some relief here.

Number of jobs for random technologies typed into Indeed
« on: March 05, 2018, 05:22:10 pm »
The search criteria were: nationwide and employer job postings only



I notice these things:

1) Cloud skills are much in demand
2) Enterprise Java jobs are less in demand than the JavaScript technologies
3) You would do well to put Linux on your resume rather than Unix (2x the number of mentions)
4) Some of the fun graphics tools and VR aren't that widely advertised
5) I typed in R Python, because R itself was confusing Indeed and a lot of R jobs also called for Python.  The combination did better than any of the enterprise Java jobs.

I left out quite a few technologies, like .Net and C##.  If anyone has any favorites, I'll collect them and add them to my little field survey

Be Prepared.

Hm, very interesting.

Linux is twice as popular as UNIX. Doubly interesting.
Brawndo. It's got what plants crave.

Great information ID.   Based on your information, it looks like I have narrowed down my experiment to 3 - SQL, Python, and Linux.  Of those 3, Linux is the one most likely to have remote opportunities.   

It might be interesting though to be certain which of those 3 have the most remote opportunities.  I might play with that search a bit.

React is another skill du jour.  I would try hosting what you do on a cloud platform, say AWS.  Maybe use Git for version control and building your app.  https://www.amazon.com/DevOps-Developers-Experts-Voice-Development/dp/1430245697 may or may not be a useful book to read.

just about every place I have been still uses Subversion for version control.   I have yet to run into GIT in the corporate environment.

Here is an interesting article on Subverion vs GIT.

Interesting.  I added Subversion to my list (2,170 mentions).  Git has 15,438.  Unfortunately, mind share is everything.  So if Git is good enough, that's probably what I would recommend for someone learning a new version control tool.

Hm, very interesting.

Linux is twice as popular as UNIX. Doubly interesting.

I added these Linux distros to my list.  CentOS was used at my last job.

CentOS   1,754
Ubuntu (has a Ubuntu Server edition)   1,275
Red Hat   3,194

RHEL  (Red Hat Enterprise Linux)  might be the best bet for business and government.  Their site says:

Quote
Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® is a stable, proven foundation that’s versatile enough for rolling out new applications, virtualizing environments, and creating a secure hybrid cloud—all backed by our award-winning support. It's just 1 reason 90% of Fortune Global 500* companies choose Red Hat.
https://www.redhat.com/en/technologies/linux-platforms/enterprise-linux


More RHEL marketing:

Quote
U.S. Department of Defense releases security configuration standard for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7


Government-wide, agencies are turning to open source software to enable faster innovation, lower costs, and better security. For the defense and military industries in particular, there is significant potential for innovation with open source technology. However, with new threats appearing every day, developing advanced solutions that can meet customer requirements for security features, agility and performance is critical.
 
Red Hat has a long history of working with the federal government and with defense agencies to create solutions that put security first and which can meet the requirements of even the world’s most security-intensive environments. Most recently, the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) published a Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. This distinction gives government customers the confidence that Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 can be configured to meet highest security requirements for use within military information systems.

CentOS is actually a fully open source version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux with the Red Hat copyrights etc removed.

Red Hat is used in most large enterprises since they can get paid support from Red Hat.   You do still CentOS where the corporations feel they do not need external support.

CentOS is used on most Web servers you see instead of Red Hat simply because there is no cost, whereas with Red hat there would be a licensing fee issue.

Ubuntu is rarely seen in most big enterprises.  You do see a small minority of Web servers with Ubuntu but they have lost ground over the past few years.

I wonder if the DoD Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG) for Red Hat Enterprise Linux makes it attractive for companies?  Seems like DoD has seized on Red Hat Linux for an implementation to harden.  That's got to be a viable market niche:  security for RHEL or CentOS.

I know there was a thread on that but too lazy to find it.

That sounds like a viable cert.  Maybe followed by a security cert for RHEL.

Go to Udemy.com and search for Red Hat.   Following is one example of such courses.  This one is from Ermin Kreponic who is one of the better Linux teachers on Udemy.   This course also has a section on preparation for the Red Hat certification exams.   His course today is $12.95.

There are quite a few similar courses on both Red Hat and CentOS.

^How often do they have these promotions?  The regular tuition is $200.  This might be a good refresher for me.  I've forgotten most of what I knew about the shells and unix utilities.  Actually, it's kind of pathetic.  Emacs too..  All gone.  Memory banks erased. :(

They have them all of the time on a large variety of courses.  The sale price ranges from about $10 to about $15.   Nobody pays the full "list price" unless they are just not paying attention.

Memory??  I seem to have heard of that somewhere but I don't remember what it is.
