I only asked this question, because although I can program in several
languages, platforms, Databases etc. , I love to have the oppertunity to
spend time exploring other things which I've come across. Also for all the
books out there, there do not 'seem' to be many on general (non-language/
platform specific) programming concepts. Steve O'Connells ,Code Complete ,
is one of the few I've come across, but maybe looking in the wrong places.
However there is so much work now (well paid too!) you think it would be mad
to go back to college????
