The technologies are changing at a rapid scale. The knowledge on
the time-lines of the APIs would have a significant edge over
the acquiring programming skills alone. Therefore, knowing what and
how, should be supplemented with when and then.
I tried to keep pace with the technologies once acquired.
Knowing VB/C++5.0,VB6/C++.0 or Net Bean 6, definitely provided a
better handle on the next generation software.
The server, side managements have also significantly advanced. I
found it a bit challenging for me to Keep Pace with Hard Ware and
software growth side by side. And I mostly go back to the online
documents, provided by the vendors and try to cross the hurdle which
posed on my way.
