    my boss is busting my balls to take training, but there is absolutely nothing i feel like learning. I could teach .NET classes, so those are pointless. I am learning SharePoint at a decent rate. I know enough Oracle/SQL Server to be dangerous.

    What would you, my fellow developers take for training? They will pay for anything...

    I am thinking maybe WWDC :o :run: Not related to work, but might be fun.

    Embedded development.

    Even if you never write for an embedded processor the knowledge of processor architecture and machine code will make you a better programmer in general. Especially if you are used to using the things you mentioned in your post (.NET and other huge library frameworks are notorious for making terrible programmers, if that is all you use)

    if your company will pay for WWDC, go for it.

    How about if your boss tells you what he needs you to do that you can't do already, and then you take some training to learn how to do it? He's not much of a manager if he has no idea what his short-term future needs are.

    eh, i am a c/c++ programmer at heart, learned programming the hard way - still do plenty of objective c, so i am well aware of memory management.

    i hate assembly :o
