Experiences and Experiments in Programming

A couple of weeks ago Scott Hanselman posted about creating your ALT.NET Geek Code.  I know there has been quite the debate about ALT.NET and I am not going to get into that.  But whether you are an ALT.NET-ian or not, there is an interesting twist to the ALT.NET Geek Code.

Seasoned pros and beginners alike are inundated with new technology and new terminology almost every day.  How do you figure out what to look into and what to ignore?  You could drive yourself crazy trying to keep up with all of it.  But a side-effect of the ALT.NET Geek Code Generator on Scott's blog is that it is a great checklist of things you should know about!

Take a look at the list of processes and tools that can be selected to form your own ALT.NET Geek Code.  It is a pretty good list of things you should know about.  I am not talking about becoming an expert in all of them....maybe not even in any of them.  But, in my opinion, developers should at least know a little about all of them (if only to be able to carry on a fairly intelligent conversation about them).  As you investigate each one, you might actually find one or more that you want to delve into and perhaps even use on a daily basis.

So the next time you are trying to decide what to look at next, take a look at the ALT.NET Geek Code Generator and pick one of the ones you don't know about.  You might just discover a new hammer!
