Just read this. And it had me sweating.
BASIC is the first language I learnt. Not that it slowed me when learning C/C++; once I got over the fact that using ‘goto’ is bad. I was banking on the fact that Oracle would be similar to MySQL. Which could be mastered in a month, atleast enough for a fresh-out-of-college job. This post blew away my presumptions. Perl I could pick up. Oracle seems a tough bet. And given the analogy, it looks like the odds are heavily stacked against me.
And a Happy New Year to you too, Mr. Smith.
