Rarely is there better motivation than competition. However, in the job market today, I consider everyone to be my competition. Staying ahead and staying motivated are part of the load we programmers have to bear. Whenever I've been bored in my job, I've found that that is the best time to start looking into new technologies, methodologies, and theories regarding programming. I don't mean just Perl either. I made it throught one large period of system testing at work by learning Python. Another round, lead me to PHP (I'm still finding security holes in PHP-Nuke). Recently, frustrations in using Parse::RecDescent have lead me to the long journey of plugging the holes in my CS knowledge.

I have always worked under the assumption that there is always someone smarter, faster, and cheaper than me, and that my boss knows them personally. Keeping food on the table has always been all the motivation I've needed to keep working to improve my skills.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
