I’ve watched the Lego Model Video and I was wondering: What are current most high demand legos / lego sets/ skills in your opinion?
I think there's 2 angles here:
For context, my answer is going to lean heavily into software engineering.
This is generally what I've seen be valued at this layer:
While I think optimizing for #1 makes sense earlier-in-career, I heavily recommend against over-optimizing for #2, which I talk about more in this video.
For those, I recommend this discussion around software engineering fundamentals.
From my personal experience, I couldn't find enough software engineers with strong leadership and communication skills back when I was at Meta/Robinhood. This is something most engineers don't prioritize learning, and a lot of companies are unfortunately pretty bad at cultivating these skills among their engineering org.
Hard to predict which specific technologies will be high-demand (that could be one interpretation of "legos"), it's hard to know about the future of things like Android, iOS, Flutter, etc.
One way to evaluate is to judge in what domains smart people are working, and copy them. Whatever legos they are refining, do the same :)
