Programming Skills in IT
DissonantData Member Posts: 158
In what areas should one know programming? I'm planning to get into an area of IT that requires a bit of programming, but not as much as in software development. My guess is in areas such as network (socket) programming and database administration, coding skills are important. These are two areas I'm considering going into.
In my Systems Administrator job I was constantly writing batch and PowerShell scripts that made my life much simpler. In my current role working with large systems and databases I end up writing bits of code here and there in C#, SQL, Hive, PowerShell, Unix Shell and probably some Java soon.
