Hi mark, welcome to Programmers! This site is for questions specifically about software development, not general work-related issues. For those, you might be interested in the upcoming Professional Matters Area 51 proposal, where such a question would be welcome. –  user8 Oct 12 '11 at 22:51
this not a real question as i see,you can do any thing you want it is just hard but you have to learn, –  Qchmqs Dec 3 '11 at 10:54

1 Answer 1

I would figure it out and find a way to make it happen, unless what your boss wants is technologically impossible. I know that every promotion I have ever gotten was because I got in over my head and succeeded. You would be surprised what you can learn. Besides, you have Stack Overflow, and Programmers.StackExchange.
