So, this week, I was approached about doing a project in a language that I have never written in before. I do not have the project yet but I was left wondering how much time to budget to learn the language. A good friend of mine is fond of saying that a coder should be able to write in any language and I do believe that. I also know that I do not know everything, though. I’ve had good experiences previously with koans. This week, I’ll probably download and check out C# Koans.
Useful and/or interesting stuff I found this week:
The effect of positive/negative attitude in system development
IronGate: ColdFusion Exception Manager
Using closures [I just started looking into this]
Georgia Tech / Udacity $7k MS in Computer Science
Send money for free, with gmail
Make/keep an off-site copy of your MSSQL Database
