Hey all.

I’m currently working as a web & Android developer, and I’ve been learning in my personal time, building services and tools for the past 4-5 months. The more I get involved with , the harder my daily job of dealing with JS and Java/Kotlin is becoming. I don’t think it’s necessary to explicitly state why this is the case, as I’m sure many people here will understand.

I’ve been thinking about transitioning into a back-end heavy Go developer position, and I want to understand the overall skill-set and responsibilities that the current market demands beyond the regular job listing copy.

So, if you’re in a job position that’s similar, it’d be really good to hear your opinions. Which skills should I hone before I go looking for a job like this?
