As I have mentioned before I am a consultant.  Add to that the fact that I have been doing software development professionally for about twelve years and that means that I am moving into higher level work.  Unfortunately that means less time that I am getting my hands dirty in the code.  This is a painful transition, especially for a code junkie like me. 

So what is the prescription to ease my discomfort.  I think it is time to bury myself in some serious code learning.  I figure I have a number of books I haven't read and need to work on my certifications.  The nice thing is that in the end it actually helps with the architecture and design work that I do on a daily basis.

Long live the code junkies!
