I know that talking about 2013 before 21st Dec is quite optimistic of me, but its high time that i focus my endeavors as a programmer on a particular set of skills.
After careful deliberation and analysis of trends, and also 1-2-1s with myself (to make sure that this is what i really want and that i choos it for myself), i have decided to become a Web Developer. I have done a lot of analysis and studied the future scope etc. andweb dev. looks to be vastly ahead of any other development model in the future.
Hence, i did a lot of analysis of the different web development technologies and tools and have shortlisted the following :
How browsers work (DOM etc.)
MVC and other design patterns
Google App Engine
NoSQL : MongoDB
5. Source Code Management
