You think you've got it bad? I finished my Computing degree nearly 19 years ago...
I've worked mostly for small companies on teeny dev teams ever since - training is all about how good I am at picking stuff up as I go along.
If I were to disappear off at a tangent (I know, I should blog it) there's a large group that's seldom well catered for )-: Scoble was discussing how easy it is to blow one's conference budget a while back yet I exist in a world where the notion of "conference
budget" doesn't even make it to the level of "theoretical concept" (one does slightly better on training budget - in that at least its acknowledged as not existing).
