  1. Thanks for the suggestion. That's what I'll do (Xcode then Java). One more question...in job advertisements for programmers/software developers the ad always seems to want proficiency in 2 or 3 languages even though the particular task they are hiring for might require only 1. For example, a job advertising for "a java developer" might also ask for experience in "xml, .Net, embedded blah blah blah..." These secondary, or "lesser" languages--are they usually necessary for the current project, or are they languages the employer would "like to have" for future work? I'm just wondering c
  2. Lots of info to think about guys. The most painful decision would be to work/live away from my daughter. The wife has a government career and can't leave Bkk, and although I'd be really keen on taking my daughter with me, she's just turned 7 y.o., so she's a bit young. The more I think about it, the more it seems I might ought to go the programming route. Easier said than done, but in my schooling, I did pretty well at it. I'm also going to continue my certifications in A+, Networking +, MCTS and MCITP. The wife's top notch at Delphi,ASP, php, sql, etc...(she's even taught these at th
  3. Thank you gentlemen for responding so quickly. I waited to see if there were any late responses. If I had it to do all over again I probably would have majored in engineering. Those guys seem to get job offers everywhere. I'll keep my eyes open and browse periodically to see what kind--if any-- MS specialties are being offered to farangs. I am curious as to what kind of programmers (which languages, platforms, etc...) are available for foreigners. Clearly web-based and the fast-growing cloud and mobile stuff, I suppose. Perhaps php, .Net, sql, maybe java etc...I'd really have to pu
  4. Guys: I have been painfully separated from my family (Thai wife and lovely, wonderful 6 yo daughter) for about a year now. I'm back in the USA. I WAS in BKK teaching (with my family) for 8 years, but seriously burned-out on it. I made the difficult decision to come back to the USA to try and re-up my skill set in IT (I really enjoyed it and should have stuck with it) and try to come back to BKK through a western company. I wish I had done this 8 years ago. I AM currently studying for a bunch of IT certifications. I'm working on my A+, then will get my Net+. Then I'll cap
  5. This thread is so long, don't know if this joke is up here: What's the difference between a queer and a refrigerator? A refrigerator doesn't fart when you pull the meat out. What does a Thai have in common with billiard que ball? The harder you hit them, the better the English. What do you get when you cross a Thai boss with a Sicilian mobster? Someone who makes you an offer you can't understand.
