Thinking about brushing up on your technology skills to remain competitive in the marketplace? While it's no secret that experience matters, in this challenging job market, it helps to look at which skills are bringing in the most dollars before deciding which technology to focus on. Even though salaries remained stagnant for the second year in a row, there were some areas that had growth, such as in programming languages Python and Perl, or for FibreChannel experts in storage.
