> The world has changed ... If it has changed, then I think it has changed in the direction of requiring developers to be skilled in (or at least capable of using) a much greater and faster-changing set of tools than in the past. There was a time when you could spend 15 years being an IBM mainframe COBOL programmer, and you never touched anything except IBM mainframe COBOL. Today I consult to organizations that employ six developers who between them use 30 or 40 products and tools, with new options constantly being assessed and adopted. I guess that you're right that there are many people on both the employer and employee side who think of developer competence in terms of specific tools. There are even some universities who pander to this. It's a stupid attitude, but you're right that it is quite widespread. Michael Kay http://www.saxonica.com/
