Your Future with COBOL

Retrain or Plan to Retire from Computer Programming
  • Chris Richardson

Abstract

Long before .NET became the household techie buzzword that it currently is (in fact, before Microsoft itself existed), a former mentor of mine suggested a career survival strategy to me. The “strategy” was simple. It first examined one’s commitment to being a “technical professional.” It then made clear how “change” was inherent in the very nature of technology. To help cement his points, my mentor offered an analogy that I remember to this day:

“Keeping up with technology is like being on board a speeding train. The day that you decide to take a break from learning, you are essentially getting off of the train—and yes, the train will leave without you.”
