Crotchety Olde Geek debuts.

Bob here.  I’ve spoken or worked with a lot of schools that teach IT over the past 30 years.  I’ve taught MS stuff (I’m an MCT), I’ve worked with developing curriculum.  I’ve spoken at every level of education from High School on up.  In the month of May I worked with 5 different schools at various levels (speaking to students, sponsoring intern programs, curriculum meetings, Blah, blah, blah).

Anywho, whenever I talked with students, some of the same issues would always come up about career versus job, skills, business knowledge, etc., etc.  So I decided to do a relatively quick (10 minute) “rant” about IT careers for people about to jump into our field.  It’s purposely done in one take, minimal editing, etc.
 

And this might be the first of a series of “rants.”  Yup.  You’ve been warned.
