Being a technology dork

I was a real dork telling a cto that I had been teaching C before they were born. I didn't really mean that I was just searching for the idea, that yah, I've done this for a while. But one advantage of being an older engineer if you've seen such an evolution. The advantage of being younger is things are a lot more stable than they used to be. I don't think people who are new to coding really get that no we aren't so excited to learn the 400th new way to write UIs or the all new language that's comin our way. But we'll grumble and learn and keep learning. Separate the wheat from the chaff.

I drew this little image map of the languages I've worked on.... shows how things spread. It's been a long journey.
