( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
My end goal is to keep advancing myself professionally. I really enjoy being just a developer right now. But I don't want to be a pure developer forever. I want the chance to gain more leadership experience, which usually means you have to climb the ladder a bit or strike out on your own. That leadership experience is one of the things I see more and more of as a requirement for "Senior Developer" positions, so it's a bit of a catch-22. You can't get the experience w/o moving up the ladder, but it's not easy getting to the first step so you can start climbing.

The project I mentioned is one I've been sitting on for a year that should be interesting both from the standpoint of developing a business around it and technically (ie. the problems are not trivial to solve and will require a bit of thinking outside the box).

Outside of coding, I intend to do a lot of sailing/canoeing/kayaking this summer. I'm going to get outside more - something I don't do nearly enough these days. Being outdoors and "experiencing" nature really energizes me, but at this point I'm unsure of how I can use that to advance myself professionally.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
