sariel6720140dLearn cobol and pascal.
You can make $250k+ a year in most places.
Like you said, you work with an aging demographic.
Once you learn the language, design and architect a path forward for the organization. Last I knew AWS supports cobol and other custom runtimes in lambda...
When you get promoted to CTO remember the old guys and how much they helped you get to where you are.
Ten91148140dI was in a similar situation back in 2019. Jumped ship. 100/100 would do it again
Grumm450140dDidn't know you worked in the same company as me xD
But yeah, we are 2 IT guys for 100 users.
I know sql, BI, C# and all the new stuff...
My 'senior' does not know anything except cobol.
Trying really hard to push new and innovative stuff in production but he always manage to block it or just deny's the problem he caused.
@Grumm At least someone in the same boat as me! BI and Crystal report. Making ERD before building a system and thinking will this design work with Crystal Report easily?
feelsbadman. Everyone is already talking about no sql, docker and devops. Im still answering late night chat from users that dont know how to turn open task managwr.
Grumm450139d@DwightSchrute Well your 6* is kind of devops already.
Next, no sql and docker are really for specific cases.
I work a lot with Dynamics AX so I don't really care about no sql.
Docker may be worth a try. We use a lot of VM's.
Using docker can lower the amount of resources needed i guess. But hey, my 'partner' will never allow me to try this out :(
