Hi Shura,
I think you might find an answer to your tribulations at the following link:

These guys have succeded in consolidating quite a few technologies. Some serious companies seem to back them up too.

... And when I am saying "really like", it means that the thing can bring you into deeper existential ecstasy than a bottle of vodka.

What's happened to your priorities my dear? I see you've been trying to demoralize capitalism from within for too long now....

Geez, Mark! We are running out of time ! I'll
probably have to move to writing... mmmm, on second thought, the Mayan Calendar predicts December 21, 2012 to be the final date of this world, so I might wanna take those last 2 years off.

Hi Folks,
Does anyone know what the current status of AI field is? What languages do they use to implement AI algorithms? How long before AI will put all programmers out of business if ever?

Don't mind the sheriff Chriss, she misunderstood.
If you feel ready to take a real job just go ahead. College degree helps a lot convincing employers but it is not something you can't do without. If I were you I would keep my part time job and try to make it full time, especially if the boss has hinted he might throw something bigger my way.
Basically Chong is right. You can always go out there and see for yourself where you stand.

Hi to all!
It sounds like a good idea to seek opportunities in the biotech field. Though I have certain moral issues with genetics. These issues are outside the area of programming so maybe it is not a good idea to bring them up in this particular forum. Suffice it to say I am very ambivalent toward genetic engineering.
Mark, your career is impressive in the sense that one always has a chance to find what one's looking for as long as one keeps searching: if our convictions are strong then our life circumstances tend to adjust to them. I wish you good luck with your book.
Thank you Jim Peterson for the wonderful quote from the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". It probably doesn't matter that I can't program since I am not gonna make it to the software business anyway ... and when I make it to the software business I might find out that I am actually a pretty good programmer . I will not lose courage to try anyway.
Thank you all guys

Thank you all guys for your advice!
Especially you Mark for encouraging me. It is nice to meet fellow physicists who have made it in the software field.
Which directon did you take Mark if you don't mind sharing it with us?

Thanks for your reply Joseph,
My feeling is that I really have to wait before I make my next move.
Luckily we physicists have the priviliege that very few men have, that of having plenty of time that we can take and think. And what I am thinking about is taking the direction of acquiring database knowledge.
Generally and philosophically speaking we humans are beings of inventory. So in the end it all comes around to the keyword "DATABASE"! Database knowledge and skills will always count. The other keyword is "MONEY". So my next question comes natural: What is the java related database field that is involved in implementing financial projects? What do banks use?
What is the scope of the so called Java database?
Is it standalone? Will there always be a need for SQL, Oracle or I don't know what else? What is the Java related technology involved in running finances?
Best Regards to All

Hi guys,
I just took my Java certification test. Not outstanding, just 84% but it's cool.
What I read here in this forum worries me no end. Looks like Java isn't as hot as it used to be. I hear people way more experienced than I am cannot get a job.
Where is it all going? Is there a way to predict how the market would be lets say a year from now?
Looks like I picked the worse time for a career change. I hold MSc in Physics.
Java doesn't seem fit for real time computation so
I think I wouldn't be able to apply it in programming lab equipment and/or experimental setups.

I am a newbie trying to publish in java. I got a simple applet working in Netscape but it refuses to load in IE. The java console reads:
Error loading class: WelcomeApplet
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError
java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: WelcomeApplet
at com/ms/vm/loader/URLClassLoader.loadClass
at com/ms/vm/loader/URLClassLoader.loadClass
at com/ms/applet/AppletPanel.securedClassLoad
at com/ms/applet/AppletPanel.processSentEvent
at com/ms/applet/AppletPanel.processSentEvent
at com/ms/applet/AppletPanel.run
at java/lang/Thread.run
My IE does not have troubles viewing the applets on this particuar site for example. So it shouldn't be the browser. I am at a loss. Please somebody help me!
