In Java Training class

….and I’m having the damnedest time, ironically, not falling asleep.

I don’t get it. I’m here, i slept well, I want to learn this stuff, but something about the whiteboards, the monitors, the hum of the heating and cooling system puts me to sleep like I’m in in the 3rd trimester.

If you happen to figure out how to keep trainees awake through classes, the world may beat a path to your door.

I think that the nature of the beast may be that the mind of the developer finally realizes it’s not at work and that vacation that developers promise themselves but never take is effectively here. The body chooses to set vacate mode “on” now

I would, therefore, propose that developers need to take a week vacation ( and I don’t mean doing all your honey-do list and all the other errands you’ve put off ) before training so that you can actually rest and be ready to learn the week after.

Easy to preach, hard to practice.
