What skills are need?
To get into the companies you will need some skills, like coding, data structure, and ALGO Etc. But apart from entry skills, you can master some skills that are actually required while working as a software developer. If you master those skills, you will be directly shortlisted based on your knowledge. So the skills that a SED use while working are

These days, cloud computing is in boast. Every second company is searching for a cloud engineer. Getting into the cloud saves a lot of money.

Also, explore different domains like Web, mobile development, this will open a new world for you.
