I started my beginning C programming class this weekend, with the obligatory first chapter of what a CPU is. Generally a waste of time that first week, but whatever. I hope C comes as easily to me as Fortran did. I am kind of stoked that the college I am working with offers all of its programming degree courses online, I could theoretically get my entire degree without showing up for a live class. Fits into my schedule very nicely!
You might ask why I am taking a programming class in addition to studying for my MCITP, as it has more direct impact on the work I do. I feel that by learning programming it makes me a more well rounded server guy, being able to create applications that can help me manage the server without involving a developer is a good thing
