I believe that education is the cornerstone of good programming practices. Standing still is a good way to get run over in this game and anybody who thinks that they can rest on their laurals as a developer will quickly become obsolete. So we try to keep up with the latest technologies without and programming practices through a combination of classes, community involvement and testing out demo versions of programs.
On this page you will find some links to educational resources, programming communities and other ways that we try to keep ourselves sharp. On-line communities are some of the best ways for us to stay in top form. After all, no amount of bluster or paper degrees will impress a real programmer. Competence is all that matters in this game and if you don't stay sharp, someone else will always be there to eat your lunch.
