Better late than never :)

I'm definitely in the same boat. Nothing has had such an impact on my overall capabilities as a programmer as Perlmonks has. Sometimes the impact has been indirect. I hear people talk about Code Complete or the Pragmatic Programmer and I run out and buy them. Wow! What an eye-opener. Even now, I look back at code that I wrote only a few months ago and wish I could just sweep it under the rug.

I know, however, that if I ever stop trying to learn more, I should just give up being a programmer. I've met people like that and they just show up to collect a paycheck (interestingly, I usually saw that in the mainframe programmers, but maybe that's just me). Of course, if I get ridiculously wealthy from being a programmer, maybe I'll still give up being a programmer...

Cheers,
Ovid
