What is Full Stack Panic?

Full stack panic is that feeling you get when you read a JavaScript newsletter and don't recognize half of what's in it. Or when you keep hearing, "Nobody uses [RAILS, WORDPRESS, JQUERY] anymore we're all using [NEW HOTNESS] over here." Or when every job description seems to require a skill you don't have and the little voice in your head says, “I should know all of this. Do I even know what I'm doing?” The web moves fast. This podcast answers the question: how do you build a successful, happy and long-term career when the ground keeps shifting under your feet?
