re: "Learn at least one new language every year" is bad advice VIEW POST


Great post, this is a really good reminder. I often feel a fear of missing out by not learning the next hot thing. Ironically, learning how to use Linux better has been one of the most effective uses of my time for being more productive at work. Going back to the basics is important!


Thanks for your comments, Andrew.

You've helped me make my point. You surveyed the landscape and chose to learn Linux because (I assume) you thought it would help you. That's excellent.


That's so true! If your application runs in a Linux environment, spending a little time over at tldp.org pays dividends!


As a PHP Developer, learning Linux/Unix commands and philosophy has been a real boon for my development speed.
