I’ve really been enjoying rolling up my sleeves and writing C# code again for one of my consultancy clients. The language has moved on in my 7 years out, but at least the backwards compatibility lets me use my version 3.5 knowledge whilst I upskill a bit. And instead of completely throwing away the BA skills I’ve worked so hard to develop, I’ve decided that a BA who can / and does occasionally code will be a unique skill to have. Any tips as to what to upskill in re: libraries, frameworks, language features, tooling etc – to get myself back to full speed as backend developer would be appreciated, please let me know.
