One step forward, two steps back
Having not done any 'real' programming for over half a year I find myself getting back into a programmers mindset. It's taken me a while to get back up to speed with Java and now I am re-familiarising myself with ASP. In both cases I have noticed that I am having to be careful not to get into nasty bad habits and properly structuring everything. After coding in Lingo and some ActionScripting it's nice to write understandable code that doesn't sprawl all over the place. Does this mean I am a programmer at heart and all this creative stuff I am doing on the course is only really superficial. You know the situation, I'll finish my course and get myself a job programming or doing the exactly the same thing I was doing in my previous job, completely neutralising the course. That's progress for you.
