Hi folks,

As the subject line says, I want to be techie for ever. I have done my Bachelors degree in Information Technology from Anna University, India. I am currently with one of India's largest IT services companies. I have around 2 years work ex in J2EE. I love programming a lot and J2EE is fun in particular. I am a SCJP and am preparing for SCWCD. I want to stay in this J3EE field for ever because it gives me utmost satisfaction. I dont want to enter management circles. I dont want to be an instructor either. Is it possible to stay in this J2EE field for ever ? Is there a company where you can expect technical challenges be thrown at you forever ?

Can someone advice me on this ? Money is very much secondary for me. Is there any higher education which would help achieve this ? I thought of an MS in computer science in US. But is there any higher education thats J2EE specific ?

Regards,
Arvind

Thanks for your replies. As s jain said, even i dont think i'll get to do some good J2EE work at Sun. But I have not done much groundwork reg this. Apart from sun, what are the other good prospects ? I guess the work at product companies would be more challenging than companies that provide consulting.

can someone pls throw some light on this ?


Cheers,
Arvind

Hi Ranchers,

Can someone pls advice me on this? I sincerely feel that your thoughts would go a long way in helping me take the right decision. I could see lots of Java/J2EE experts out here. Pls share your experiences in this regard.


Thanks,
Arvind
