We’re pretty lucky these days to work and play with lots of cool stuff. In a consumer world of HD TVs, Mac books, iPhones, Droids, Angry Birds, Face books and tweets, life is rarely boring. Working in IT is the same. We’ve got clouds, NoSQL, agile, SOA, ria, pythons, scalas, rubies, and lots of ideas and technologies to play with every week. If only our friends and relatives outside of IT could figure out what the hell we’re all excited about, and the simple fact that most of us aren’t millionaires.
