my first job was IT operations then I got promoted to the development department because of my experience in the spring framework .but I was introduced to dead, old tools.
it was IBM WebSphere portal/server and it comes with IDE that has nothing close or related to programming. it was all about drag and drop items called builder, and each item has set of configuration. despite the lack of resources, I managed to learn it very well, and helped the team to reduce repetitive tasks.but, after one year I feel I'm wasting my time, and lost. because I did not gain new worthy experience, and I didn't improve my programming skills.
So, what would you do if you were in the situation? and is it common thing that corporations use such cursed products?
