brad from MA - grateful hobbyist. The hobbyist program contributed to gainful employment for me - I landed a VMS job that was dependent on my passing a "DCL skills test". Luckily, I had a VMS box at home, with which to keep up my DCL skills. I passed the test and landed the job.
Unfortunately, with the current state of VMS and the general economy, the gig lasted only 18 months. After spending another nine months fruitlessly searching for VMS work, I gave up, and have gone back to school to train as a medical coding specialist. I should have my certificate in a few weeks, and (hopefully) a job after I graduate in March.
I'm a passionate VMS hobbyist, with a PWS433au at home (using Mozilla now to browse/post as we speak). I use WASD as a web server, instead of SWS. I use the server mostly to learn PHP and MySQL. VMS is still in use at some hospitals; perhaps my next paying gig can combine old and new skills.
