If anty friends are already in the Macrosoft track, he/she should embrace
C# and .NET immediately. Sometime ago, a friend said in his posting that it may take for one year or so for the C# to get hot in the market.
Smart guys in the IT industry should always be ready for the potentially hot technology. If anybody wait for the C# to become hot, it will be late.
Two years ago, it was very easy for Java novices to get a job. Now it becomes more and more difficult. In Washington DC, there is a school named "SouthernEastern Univerisity" ( this one cannot be compared to
the one with a same name in Nanjing, China). This school produced a lot of MS Degrees for about $15K each year. One of my friends told me
that the recent job fairs in this area have become a gathering party for the graduates of SouthernEastern University.
Here are some historical lessons. As I began to learn programming, VB was very, very hot. At that time, if you knew a litlle bit ASP, you could get a good-pay job. At that time, people asked the questions abot ADO in the job interview. Right after one or two year, employers became more concerned if the candidate knew DAO, COM stuff. After just 3 years, VB has been degraded to the No. 3 programming langauge.
To survive in the IT world, there are a lot of strategies. I know a friend who has ever been written Unix C for 11 years. She worked on Java for a few months last year but soon she went back to C. For novices, it is hopeless for them to hack on the hard bone such as C/C++. The only way for them is to get into the field by mastering some extremely new technology. I myself can be a live example. Without the opportunity that Java provides me, I might still be in the dark. Today, market is not good
and I may be kicked out of the market. However, I have already been quite seasoned so I have already possessed some skills to secure a new job. For novices, it is important to choose a good incision point.
Java has ever offered a good opportunity, but some people have missed it.＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
