Training advice for developers
Over the years I have been constantly asked if I could give advice on what types of web programming languages should either a young developer or a seasoned developer who wants to redefine their selves study.
The first question I would always fire back to the person is what type problems do you enjoy solving? Do you want instant gratification and seeing the fruits of your labour instantly, or do you enjoy taking on massive problems and spending half of your time just thinking and planning out how to solve the problem?
Because information technology changes so fast from year to year and lately week to week, this question has been getting harder and harder to answer. The answers I use to give out are now dated and I now find myself asking the same question in this ever growing, not so black and white industry.
I’m just scratching the surface on how large and complex this problem has become. So what now? What advice to I give? Well, to be honest, I do not have all the answers any more.
