Learning Curves

Recently my career has taken a few curves, learning curves to be exact.  After several years of little or no professional programming, I am re-entering the development side of the house.  Lately I’ve been immersed in Java, Eclipse, WebSphere, JDBC, ODBC, Maven, and CVS.

Each of these technologies individually wold make for a decent learning curve, taking them all on at once, in the midst of a major re-engineering effort, has made for some frustrating days.  The organization is in flux, the development standards are changing (we’re switching from CVS to Subversion as I type), new managers and new employees are altering the status quo at every turn.  It is exciting and terrifying all at the same time.
