Should you care? Hell yes! If only to be up-to-date with the latest developments in software, your bread and butter.
I actually can't believe you (and others) didn't already do a five minute read-up years ago when it became hot
Although if you're doing UI development it may not be that applicable
In 7 years as a developer I never shipped anything that required any kind of toy like that. There isn't only the web - in fact there is a definite lack of low level programmers because everyone and their dogs launch themselves on the latest trends, as if programming was a popularity contest, rather than doing the hard stuff.

Neither did I to be honest, but it's good knowing what's out there even if you're not using it.
As I said, you don't need Docker if you're doing UI development, or low level, as you said, but surely you know about Rust when you're a C(++) developer even if you're not using it? (And just in case you don't, Rust should be THE new and easy replacement for C, or so I'm told, I don't do C(++)).
I once worked with a web developer who never heard of Node.js.
I find that absolutely amazing (and not in a good way) that some people care so little about their trade that they miss such industry changing tools.
Especially as a consultant I can't imagine coming to a client and not knowing about Node.js or Docker, I'd be out of a job in no time!
So it looks like Micro$oft has updated my rig's OS to this build that seems to be getting all sorts of bad reviews.
I'm trying to synch up some backups, and the readings for the sizes for a particular directory are all over the map. I use a great free utility called WinDirStat as well (although it takes a while to refresh ), which is the ONLY reading in which the directories (i.e., across a pair of drives) are the same. If it makes any difference, the files here are mostly audio files, with a few auxiliary files, that were all downloaded via qbitTorrent.
WinDirStat: 183,979,917,768 - BOTH
Explorer (at the directory level): F: 148,637,098,513 C: 170,778,902,832

A few years ago there was a beer that was sold in bottles and on tap, with a particular fruity flavour (redolent of pears). I am sure that the image had a kingfisher in the picture. I cannot find it anywhere (pub or suprmarket), nor can I remember the name. Anyone in the UK know the one I mean?
To rule out the obvious, you're not talking about the Indian Kingfisher[^] beer???

Clearly you have no idea about any Belgian beer. Stella is considered one of the worst beers here (and I'm coming from the city it's brewed from AND my wife worked for the company), so if you like that kind of sewage water, yeah I guess you find UK beer good.
You are f*^^&^g delluded. UK beer is the best in the world.
I'd appreciate a little more politeness please, ...
Look, I lived there fort 4 years, and drank a lot of beer. You cant pretend I dont know Belgium beers and there isn't one I would drink again except Stella on tap in Leuven (not in bottle) and Grimbergen blonde.
It's all down to personal taste obviously but I've never had a Belgian beer that I've liked. They've always been far too gassy for my liking and whilst they've had 'interesting' tastes that is not the same as being pleasant.
I think British real ales and craft beers have developed to such an extent over the past 30 years or so that they really can rival any in the world. I was also pleasantly surprised to see the craft beer explosion on a recent visit to the US, although there again they tended to favour the gassy stuff.
The US and UK are such similar cultures, that independently, they can have such revolutions at the same time, and the craft beer one is a good example. And yes, there are some really good ones in the US.
