I am 45 & want to re-enter workforce after 3 years out of IT. I used RPG for 15 years(not even ILE) and have BPCS experience. I have just picked up a couple of books (SQL and Free-format RPG) to study at home. I think it will be very difficult to get back in .... any ideas/hints/tips would be appreciated on areas to study etc. I have loaded Java on to my machine but i am thinking that in learning Java i will be up against youngies with heaps of experience and it may be best to stick with RPG for now?
