[19]if I had stayed ] java

I think every tsn experience and proposal has some “buts”, so does it mean we should stop trying?

No. If I had stayed within java/sql/perl then I would have been worse off —

  • fewer job opportunities, less broadened technical base
  • slightly more worry about job security
  • more worry about churn
  • more worry about outsourcing
  • no differentiation from millions of java guys
  • left behind by some of the alpha geeks who branch out and establish new strongholds.
    • My technical mind is the BROAD-n-deep, curious explorer type so it is stifled if confined to java
  • sql and perl both falling out of fashion

But ….

  • possibly more competent in terms of figure-things-out relative to team peers
  • possibly fewer stigmas and more respect
  • ^^ These factors depend mostly on localSys knowledge
  • not so much stress, so much painful struggle in the beginning
  • possibly an architect role, provided I stay long and invest heavily in localSys

Was leverage good on my multiple tsn attempts after GS? reasonable leverage in some attempts.
