Hi!

I'm in programming 5 years now, most of it in java. In the meanwhile I've finished MBA in Croatia. Since we are having less and less work in company that I work full time (economy crisis,...), my colleague and I started our own company hoping to work for ourselves and work form home full time, one day. We are still working in the same company full time and working after 5 in our own company.

We didn't say no to any project so we learned a lot for the price of working hard and lots of hours for small amount of money (php, python, asp.net, android, ios, AutoCAD drawing manipulations,...).

Now I feel it is time to specialize something, go into one direction, be really expert in something. In your opinion, what are most growing fields of software development in next 3-5 years? We are planning to search for job opportunity over the Internet since situation in our country is not so great. I'd like it to be something I could work at from home, full time.

Greetings from Croatia!

The lack of response wasn't due to the length of the question. Nobody can predict the future. I imagine mobile will still be big. But specific technologies?

The working from home angle also adds a spin. Getting a work from home job where you can come into the office sometimes is different than full time where they never see you. You might search this forum for outsourcing websites and see what technologies are big there.
