I was going through my email this morning…through all of the typical “trade rags” that I get:
- java blogs daily
Anyhoot…it got me thinking about how much I miss being in code all day/every day as a part of my job (my job as a senior developer is to develop/coach junior developers how to be better developers, NOT coding… 😦 ). And that got me thinking about a challenge I got from one of my mentors (like a hundred years ago!) to “learn a new language every year”. WOW! Now THAT was FUN!!
So, I decided to take up that challenge again this year and make it one of my “personal growth” goals for the year. 🙂 Now I just need a new language…or even an aspect of a language that I already know…to work on. Here is my mental list:
- Objective C
By the way…I don’t consider DSL’s (Domain Specific Languages) and uber scripting langues like Ruby, Grails, and PHP “languages”. Sorry…just my personal opinion.
