Discussion on: Have you ever been forced to learn a tech you do not like?

I'm still not giving in. I do not want to learn node.js, but it's all you guys ever talk about!

But seriously - Joomla, wordpress, .NET (which is funny because I started out as a VB programmer, and loved asp). It's like every freelancer job I ever did was using tech I had never seen before that I suddenly had to become the expert in.

Advice - learn to say NO.

Thankfully, I get to decide what tech I use now.

Not saying it's applicable to you, but sometime external pressure is needed to broaden one's comfort zone, cf. my answer.

So... learn to say YES!
