Programming: Programmer Courses

Recently, my company has started providing courses on various programming topics. I'm not impressed. Not at the offer, which is great, but at the need.

Let’s make one thing clear from the beginning, I don’t mind if a company is willing to send a programmer on a course if they want to… I just think that if a coder wants to learn something, he will - Off his own back, in his own time.

Why? Because the history and spirit of programming is to find out, explore, experiment and fail, in order to succeed. Not to simpy be told (and try to stay awake!)

After all, that’s where the fun is in the first place, right??? Well.. At least that’s why I like to code, anyway!
