Re: RE: Should XML Professionals Be Programmers?
I'd say it depends. If nothing else it depends upon the size of the company and maybe even the department within the company. In a small shop you tend to be a Jack/Jill of all trades and have to know something about everything. In larger organizations, you tend to get specialists, you get a librarion, you get an editor, you get a DTD person, you get a programmer and you get a stylesheet person. In the large shop you might not even be able to peak into these different realms, so younever develop skills in these areas. Best of all worlds, I want someone that can do it all. Barring that, I start looking at the current team and try to figure ot what is missing or needs backup. So you go in with the long laundry list of skills but in reality your looking for a specific 2 out of the long list. I get frustrated on the flip side of this question. I see lots of jobs posted for XML expert, but when you read the fine print or showup what they really want is an expert (name your programming language) that knows a little about XML. ..dan > Hi there, > > I'm a qualified information professional (~=librarian), working on an > XML-heavy project in the publishing world. > > I've been following XML-Dev and hoping to learn more about this question > too: how do you define an "XML professional"? > > Is anyone on the list qualified specifically in XML itself? > > It seems to me like "something I should have learned at Library School", > but it's one of those things that librarians tend to leave to the IT > people. > > Cheers, > > Michael > > From: Len Bullard [mailto:Len.Bullard@ses-i.com] > Sent: 08 March 2012 16:27 > To: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: Should XML Professionals Be Programmers? > > It's a general qualifications question: do you expect an XML professional > to: > > > 1.
