What to do next?
I've been working in software testing for the past 15 years, currently in management and less hands on than I am used to be. I'm starting to realize I am happier in a more hands on role and would like to develop some scripting skills.

In the past I've done some Perl, Java, and C++ but not much experience in the practical application of these. Know SQL well and use daily. I think I would like to focus on a scripting language or technologies with a view towards test automation, and am interested (maybe) in the NoSQL movement. I was thinking of Ruby, or Grails since they have come up in recent interviews but actually would like to begin with something I can get up to speed and apply quickly.
I can probably devote up to 4 hours a day studying (at work, thus the anon).
Also, recent employers who have contacted me have been LAMP shops, so maybe something in that.
Any ideas/suggestions appreciated.
