Luckily, right now, everything is in the right place for my current job.
- they are paying me above the local median (we are talking Atlanta here not Silicon Valley)
- the technology stack we are using is not bleeding edge but in the right place in the hype cycle.
- I think they will continue to do so for the next two years.
But you’re right. I’m not going to spend my time learning the latest frameworks if I am not going to use it at my current job and I don’t see myself in the market within six months. But if my company ever got too far behind the market, I would have to start preparing.
