Continuing education is especially important in this industry. Our clients look to us as the experts that they hire to solve problems. It's our job to not only solve those problems but to stay up to date and learn new technologies and frameworks in order to provide the best most current solution.
Failing to stay current or up to date can cause you as a developer to stagnate and/or get stuck in your career doing maintenance forever. Discovering your best and most effective method to learn is a must in order to stay up to date.
