Recently a colleague of mine posed this question. Well, specifically his question was, “what software development skills will be valuable for college students to know if they wanted to pursue a career in cloud services and/or application development,” which after thinking about my reply, I realized could be condensed to the question that’s the title of this blog post.

Finally, I like to think that being a good developer (cloud or otherwise) is like being a good carpenter. You may start off doing a specific task on a job site, eventually building very basic, functional homes, but over time you will acquire the tools and skills to build incredibly complex structures. Go and build something today.
