    Question Back to programming?

    Hi there..

    I am new to this club so hi!
    I am 29 years old with an honours degree in Computer Science. I've been working in the IT industry for six years.

    Thing is I have "fallen" into the the not so great world of Domino/Notes. Now its a different kind of development with some coding. With Lotus Script some JavaScript etc. I look back on the the past six years and I have been pretty bored most of the time.

    WHen I think back to the times I have been coding be it in Lotus Script or VB and time flew by. I never noticed the clock go by at work.

    This may sound silly but is it too late to go back to programming? Its seems to be something I really think is fun?

    I may have a project starting next week using the Notes C-API so keep your fingers crossed for me..

    Any feedback would be appreciated..

    Cheers!
    AlĘ

    No, of course not. Get a reasonable compiler, a couple of current books, write a few test pieces and away you go. It'll come back to you. Programming is, basically, programming. Once you've understood the concepts, the rest is detail and semantics.
    Wave upon wave of demented avengers march cheerfully out of obscurity unto the dream.
