The less purely technical, the more generally applicable. But most of the biggest companies use Salesforce Sales and/or Service Cloud, so it will never not be an asset. Focus on the architect side, get into Mulesoft/Heroku/Tableau, and a lot of that stuff is transferrable to any enterprise architecture/data analytics role.

I am now being pushed to take up as a TL because of my performance and contribution to the project management. However i feel with just 2 years of experience if i take the position i might have to stay much longer in the company than i intend to as a minimum requirement for position of TL elsewhere is 4 years of experience as associate. Also what is the salary slab one should get as a TL?

Looking for advice on where to head next. Now I'm mostly working with Azure Databricks, SQL, and a little bit of Ansible CI/CD.
After 12 months I can influence where my next role is and I'm wondering what is the best career direction.
The next role can include
C#,
APIs,
React,
DevOps / Ansible,
Or more Azure Synapse & Databricks
Which of these languages / technologies is good for my future in tech? Or does it matter?

I’ve changed jobs many times, even moved to the other side of the world without job and work visa (it all worked out fine) and after I left my previous job I took 6 months off to travel before I started this job at a network agency I loved. I always had confidence.

This is the first time I feel so heartbroken and almost grieving about it, and even the quality of work sucked (but the network and people are good). How do I get over this? I want myself back!
