The era of education is now ending for me, I’m heading out into the market for real, I’ve applied for 30 different developing jobs, most of them are web developer jobs but also some system development. However, I won’t stop evolving and educating me, put as Andy Hunt and Dave Thomas, authors of The Pragmatic Programmer writes on page 14 whilst talking of a programmers life goals:
Learn at least one new language every year.
And that I intend to really do!
So to solve this and to get back up on my horse, and catch up to the competition, I’ve bought a book called Seven Languages in Seven Weeks: A Pragmatic Guide to Learning Programming Languages by Bruce Tate. I hope that it will be inspiring and that I will learn a lot. I will make an effort to at least learn Erlang and Haskell, two languages that I think will broaden any programmers perspective a lot.
Whish me luck, or better yet, hire me!
