The sheer volume of new technologies and methodologies in the software industry today is mind-blowing, yet the industry somehow expects you to be a 'Full-Stack Developer' or an 'On-demand expert'? This expectation is clearly unhealthy, but what is a poor software industry professional to do?

The Diabolical Developer takes a look at the most recent industry trends for the day to day software engineer, tech lead, engineering manager. Most importantly he'll cover how to survive the chaos, and even thrive in it!

Blockchain, K8s, DevOps, GitOps, VR, AR, Quantum, PaaS, IaaS, SaaS, Agile, Scrum, XP, Lean, Java, Javascript, Typescript, Helm, Terraform, AI, ML, Data Science, Python are just some of the topics that will be dissected.
