Look for Technological Sharks

Look for technological sharks
Old technologies that have stuck around are sharks, not dinosaurs. They solve problems so well that they have survived the rapid changes that occur constantly in the technology world. Don’t bet against these technologies, and replace them only if you have a very good reason. These tools won’t be flashy, and they won’t be exciting, but they will get the job done without a lot of sleepless nights (View Highlight)

candidates that fit this bill off the top of my head:

  • postgresSQL (good news for 202212162359)
  • django
  • struggling to think of a third one… kind of a stretch but i would argue nodejs is moving into this territory
i've never worked professionally with the C languages, but they've been around forever for good reason
