Frustration Begins With F. The

Wednesday, June 19 2002

Frustration begins with F. The letter F starts with the sound “eh”. Draw that sound out, put your gut into it, hold for twenty seconds, and you get the sound I make as realize that the time I’ve spent trying to learn a new technology has produced nothing by a long drawn out sound of frustration.

I’ve been tasked with solving a problem at my new job that I have no compentancy in. My technical lead doesn’t seem to have a problem with this, but for me it’s the source of great frustration. I’m brand new on the job, and I want to be able to quickly affirm that they hired the right person for the job. I can’t do that when I’m tackling a huge learning curve, and it’s frustrating.

I’ve also noticed that this happens alot. It’s called “Give the contractor something to do while we figure out where he best fits in.” I don’t know what to do about that troublesome trend.

I do know that when I finally tackle the learning curve, I’m going to make some kick ass tutorials that will save someone in my current situation from having to produce cave man like noises. It’s my offering to “technical karma”. Promise to make it easier for someone, and the “technical karma” will pre-bless me with ease of learning. It will hit any second now, I’m sure of it.
