If you're in low level stuff, exactly what cguy said.
Otherwise if you're a web developer, JAMStack and PWA's is something to look into.
We need to be smart in the current economy. How are you guys experiencing the dev market?
C/C++, Tensorflow, CUDA, Accelerators, Heterogenous Hardware programming (chips that have CPUs, Tiled SIMD grids/mesh/array architectures and/or FPGAs on them).
Why? Moore’s law is slowing down, the only way to get faster is going to be to very closely match hardware with the software.
Any ideas where to look for low-level programming employment?
I started out writing C/C++, ASM and HLSL in my teens because I wanted to do game development. Never touched the languages since then and I do the .NET/Java/JS route these days.
I really do miss the technicalities the low-level code brings, but looking in SA, I don't see many of them. Maybe I'm going about it all wrong.
