One of the bonuses and also challenges of being a coder is that you’re often required to learn more and expand your knowledge. Even with a role as defined as mine I am still learning more and at the moment I have two challenges for the next few months to try and get my head around; node.js and backbone.js.
The horrible part is that learning languages requires a ton of time set aside and a ton of cash. Textbooks are expensive and finding time is at a huge premium when you’ve involved in startups and new projects. But I will keep my fingers crossed that I am able to find some time and expand my knowledge, I am especially excited by writing some full-circle apps in node.js and some more complex front-end code using backbone.js.
