Now, if i manage to pass SCWCD, you know what it will mean? Nothing.
Anyone in a similar situation?
But if you can set yourself a 5-10 year plan by listing important technologies and what positions/jobs you'd like to find yourself
Will the learning ever stop?
I think so. If we look back over the last 10 years in Java or PHP say, they have both grown considerably in popularity. The number of job opportunities has risen massively. Java and PHP have both evolved (added features like generics and various APIs, and PHP has gone OO at last) but it's a lot easier for someone to adopt these new features of a familiar language than start with a new one. C/C++ has been used for OS programming and as an alternative to assembly for well over two decades and I can't see it going anywhere soon.
Charles, you really think that is possible after you mentioning that technologies are "evolving"?
