Looking back on my day, I realized that, yes, I had spent the entire day furiously typing out code while listening to the soundtracks from the Matrix movies. My nerd quotient is really getting up there, I'm afraid.
On the other hand, I'm having a blast learning new tech here at work, as I've mentioned. So when I saw "Developer Bootcamp" pop up on my calendar, I was super excited!! I read through all of the materials that they linked in the bootcamp invitation, so that I would be prepared. Two solid hours of DataStage fundamentals! Hooray!
So I take my seat in the lecture hall, log in to my computer, and prepare to have my mind blown.
An older gentlemen approaches the lectern, and fires up his projector and logs in to his computer. IT IS ON.
... and he spends two hours reading the documentation to us.
Yes, he spent the training reading the material that I had already read. The day before.
Let me tell you something, gentle reader: if and when you would create a litmus test of boring, I submit that "having someone read you technical guides that you have just read" hits the mark pretty squarely.
Yes, yes, litmus tests don't hit marks, but we're not here to dwell on my metaphor mixology, now, are we?
What's that? We ARE??
Tomorrow, ADVENTURE!! :)
