How To Learn

How To Learn

In our careers as software developers, one of the biggest challenges we face is “keeping up.” I personally know a COBOL developer that is freaking out because there’s “no development work.” This obviously isn’t the case, but because he let his technical skills age over time, he’s now much like the horse carriage repairman that thought automobiles were a fad. This talk will give you some inspiration to learn something new, while showing you some simple ways to make it a reality.
