10 skills developers will need in the next five years

| Comment

Just came across this from techrepublic.com... basically its a list of skills developers will need in the next 5 years:

With the recent changes in the economy, a lot of developers are focused on their short-term job prospects. At the same time, it's important to make sure that you get the most bang for your buck when it comes to taking the time and energy to learn new skills. Here is our list of 10 skills you should be learning right now to make sure that your resume is relevant for the next five years. The list is hardly exhaustive, and there are huge swaths of the industry it won't cover (mainframe developers, for example). Nonetheless, for average mainstream development, you can't go wrong learning at least seven of these skills -- not only to the point where you can talk convincingly about them at a job interview, but actually use them on the job.

Here is the list

1: One of the "Big Three" (.NET, Java, PHP)
2: Rich Internet Applications (RIAs)
3: Web development
4: Web services
5: Soft skills
6: One dynamic and/or functional programming language
7: Agile methodologies
8: Domain knowledge
10: Mobile development
