comment Is the abundance of frameworks dumbing down programmers?
To counter the automatic tranny argument: many professional drivers don't drive manual cars, and many more are going to flappy paddle shifting which is generally computer controlled.

comment Is it best to try to work at a company where your software directly makes the company money?
@Pierre 303: I don't think that's technically correct. The person cleaning the bathroom contributes value, but doesn't necessarily contribute directly to profit.

comment What do you put in the “Computer Skills” section of your resume?
@HLGEM: Maybe I should have bolded "... work MORE" with. I did not, and would never, propose putting anything on a resume that is not true. Your work history will show what you're most proficient in, but any amount of experience with a technology I'd suggest putting it in your list of skills... unless of course you want to work in the same tech stack for the rest of your life.

comment Job hopping, is it a problem?
@ChrisF: Very much agreed. @charstar "The assumption here... because they were unable to keep the previous one." No it's not. Even if they're quitting jobs that frequently, then they've still set a pattern of her and gone in no time. I guess if someone was a serial-startup-employee, I would also wonder why everything they're working on tanks.
