learn new language

John: "Ken... What advice would you give Java programmers?"
Ken Orr: "Don't define yourself as Java programmers."

UML was developed to meet the design needs of programmers. We need tools focussed on meeting the design needs of users.

Master more than one design/programming paradigm.[..]s/archive/2006/03/ken_orrs_advice_1.html

And similar general advise for programmer from another guy:

The Pragmatic Programmers suggest learning a new language every year. This has already paid off for me. The more different languages I learn, the more I understand about programming in general. It's a lot easier to solve problems if you have a toolbox full of good tools.

Insightfull inspection, do you agree?

(1) Users actually find typing stuff in a lot easier than clicking things. This one surprised me a lot. I have got people to use ping, ipconfig, winver, netsh etc. with very little difficultly. In constrast, common gui elements like radio buttons, drop downs, menus, right-click menus etc. have to be explained fairly regularly. I think this is related to the "exactness" of typing, versus the ambiguity of clicking something.[..]DiscussTopicParent=8757&ixDiscussGroup=3
