A little while ago, I saw a site, I thought it was Workopolis.com, that allowed you to type in a job skill, and it would show you a graph over time of how popular that keyword has been.

So, if you typed in Hibernate, you'd see nothing in like 2000, and then a really fast upswing. If you typed in MCSE, you'd see a large spike in about 1999-2000, and then really slow or even negative growth towards 2008.

Anyways, it was a great way to see what technologies were hot, which technologies were fading, and which technologies are really in demand right now.

If anyone knows where the heck I saw that site, please let me know.

Thanks,

Heh...I love playing with this. I almost wonder if this should go into meaningless drivel or programming diversions. You can play with this graph all day.

Here's the one I like:

JSF vs. Hibernate vs. EJB vs. Struts vs. Seam vs. GWT

I'm blogging about it, if anyone cares.

The graph is incomplete. Aside, another marketing toy for IT recruting firms. They never indicate how many job postings were searched. So, Percentage of Matching Job Postings has very little meaning.

The advertising material states "[elided].com searches millions of jobs from thousands of job sites
1% of 10 jobs searched doesn't accurately reflect any industry trend, in my opinion.

I'm not so sure that it isn't applicable.

A random sampling of 1% of the millions of jobs that are posted every year should provide some valid results. I'm not saying the deviation might not be high, but I think the trends are very solid.

It's interesting stuff, nevertheless.

Wonderful site.
 
There are no more "hours", it's centi-days. They say it's better, but this tiny ad says it's stupid:
