comment Education vs. Experience
Education = Learning not to fall in a hole that rarely occurs. Experience = Learning what holes are out there and how to avoid falling in them. Occasionally you learn by first falling in them though :(

comment Education vs. Experience
I find it quite different in real life. I've worked at a number of programming companies of varying sizes, and when they see an impressive skill set with impressive experience and you leave out the education part entirely, they normally don't ask. Just my experience.

comment FizzBuzz - really?
@Inaimathi I never implied you were stupid, I work closely with a Graphic Artist who is smarter than a lot of programmers I know. I merely implied I wouldn't expect a graphic artist to pass a programming test, as I wouldn't expect a programmer to pass a graphic artist test

I routinely give out the FizzBuzz test at interviews and routinely have people fail it. One graphic designer passed it one day though..... Surprised me a bit :)

That's exactly what I think is happening, we're underbidding so we don't lose projects.

comment How do programmers quit a job?
@Tim Goodman - Removed that other paragraph as well :), @FOR I doubt Chuck Norris cares what I am doing, and my other threat is a bit of a rant, but this one is quite relevant to many people
