Selling my soul to something-or-other

You know, I could have a new job tomorrow if I learned C#, .Net, and ASP.

I’m not that desperate.


About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Can you learn C#, .Net and ASP that quickly?

  2. alchemist says:

    Yes I can. I’ve got all the underpinnings, since they’re all C-like languages. It’s mostly the language specific functions and object calls I’d have to learn. I could probably be conversational in all three in under a week, and fluent in about a month or so with heavy use.

    I meant by tomorrow ;)

    You should still learn them for when there is a Linux edge services group launched out of Redmond that cherry picks Linux folks…

    (must use inside voice)

  6. alchemist says:

    Depends on how much money is involved ;)

  7. spot says:

    Yes, but do you really want to work for Novell? *ducks*

    Hell, you could have a new job tomorrow if you’re willing to incinerate dead elephants.

    Yes, I almost applied for a job like that…
