I feel left behind when comparing my skills with other people having 2.5 years experience.

I have no clue what is Spring, RESTfull, Hibernate and other things which seem to very much in demand.

I must say I learn things pretty quickly and have a knack for getting things done using Google search and StackOverflow. This skill is a must and most of Software Engineers are like this :)

I really wish I had got to work using Java. Looks like there are endless job openings for Java and it’s related technologies. PL/SQL not so much.

I’m looking for any guidance for advancing my career.
