5 Tech Skills That Will Help You Earn More in 2018

Want to make big money in 2018? If you’re fluent in one or more of the following skills, you have it made-and if you’re not, there’s no better time to learn.

Java Programming

If you're a programmer now, or you want to become one, you've probably heard of Java.

In line with a slogan: Write Once, Run Anywhere, Java has become almost an omnipresent language that can be run virtually on any platform. This means that developers highly skilled in the language may be certain to find an interesting and well-paid job. A Senior Java Developer has a real chance for a salary ranging from €74,000 to €130,000, with as much as 90% of all software developers specializing in this language approaching the top rate last year.

Oracle SQL Programming

Developed in the ’60s, IBM Structured Query Language appears in approximately 13% of job advertisements on recruitment websites as one of the requirements for potential IT employees. This is the language for special tasks currently used to manage information in Oracle databases.

At the end of 2017 the average salary of SQL Developers in the US amounted to €70,000 per year. Given the frequency of occurrence of the Oracle databases in many companies, organisations and institutions, experts predict that in 2018 specialists using the language in their work may expect a remuneration of even €80,000.

Cloud computing

On-device software and storage may not be passé just yet, but it’s getting there, as more and more computing processes are taking place in the cloud. Many companies also prefer distributed computing, which allows multiple computers to network with one another to solve a task (and, unlike the cloud, gives companies control over the actual hardware involved). Many of the skills involved with cloud computing and distributed computing are related, so the two are often grouped together.
