We showed this video during our recent Solid meetup in San Jose (which went well, thanks to all the help from this site!). It did a great job of outlining how today’s REST API model of getting bulk information from a centralized server would be replaced by sets of requests to a collection of smaller Pods - a very different mechanism.
This got me wondering if the back-end technologies of today would still be widely used in a solid world. The last few years I’ve been ramping up my Django/Python/SQL skills; now I’m wondering if Solid catching on big-time could significantly reduce the demand for those skills. In 5 years they may be like knowing Cobol.
I’d like to hear your thoughts about this. Meanwhile, I’m going to go do my Angular-JS homework
