I'm striving to be a good programmer, I used to be among the best around people who were learning at the same time I was, but I reached a plateau and I don't understand why other programmers know so much more than I do. I can't be useful anymore, I fail all tests for good jobs, etc.
Should I get php training? Like courses? I'd like to know what are the best around. I feel there is so much money to be earned by being a good programmer but I just cannot be one. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks.
Learning never stops.
That is the true spirit of a computer programmer. And classes and courses are not mandatory, only helps.
That's the race of life and learning, once you've reached a goal, if you just stay and not continue, the rest of the world will past you. Look at the US education for example. Used to be one of the best in the world, now we're ranked #38 in the developed world. That's same with you, you have to continue on learning and progressing, once you stop, the world will pass you by. It's always better to be in front of the race than being in the back, being reluctantly dragged forward by the tide.
If you are interested in some Lynda.com tutorials on PHP and MySQL, feel free to contact me personally. I do have access to many Lynda materials.
