What are developers learning in the 1Q of 2021?

I was wondering what are the new trends or classic paths that developers like to throw themselves into.

Developers are curious people, they always want to learn something new, destroy something and fix it from scratch.

So I asked my lovely friends on Twitter and as always they were happy to share their thoughts.
