Personally, I've been at my current job for about 3 months now. I can completly understand powerbuilder being the station wagon of the programming world. Hell, the scooter even. (/me imagines picking up a date with powerbuilder.. "It's my moms, sorry..")

In the past couple months I've come a ways. I've been programming since I was 11 or so. Pretty activly. Perl has been around in my life for the last 2 years or so. Maybe 3. Regardless, with working here I've touched based on a lot of the more advancted topics, and I've notice that my code has been a lot cleaner. Maybe I'm not learning much new material, or many new programming languages, but I'm sure becomming more and more efficient in the tools I use most daily. (Perl/Transact SQL). Even looking back 3 months, I see how I've grown. Efficiency leads into learning new material, at least in my mind

As far as facing the unknown goes. If you know its something you can do, and dont see any hitches, I think the issue is making sure you have enough time to finish the job. I've been handed things here and been told I have 2 weeks to finish them. Looked at them and thought, "I could do this in 4 hours..". Shortly after working on said project I realize it'll take 3 weeks. Not because of the programming, but because of the symantecs and politics involved. Such is life. But that goes with facing the unknown.

I've gotten great reviews from the boss(s) and think I'm on the right track being employed here. I certinly feel like I'm learning, but becoming more and more efficient is just as important.

Well, thats just my $.02, I'm hoping it provides insite.. :)
