comment Should a web developer understand TCP/IP and how routers manage requests?
+1 for "It can also be invaluable when you need to be in a room discussing a problem with the developers, the web server admins, the network admins, and the database admins to be able to speak and understand the language everyone else is speaking and to ask intelligent questions"

comment Should a web developer understand TCP/IP and how routers manage requests?
Did they want to know more about how TCP/IP requests are made at a conceptual level, or did they want to know specifics ? TCP/IP is used under the hoods every time we communicate on a network. I personally believe it is very important to understand how things work under the hoods at least at at a conceptual level. This will help you spot problems, and often even design better solutions.

comment Can a CS degree benefit an older programmer?
@RobertHarvey If I may ask, did you try asking your boss, why he did not consider you for the raise without a degree ? Did he think a degree will impart more knowledge which was a pre-requisite for the raise, or was it company policy ?

comment Are stand up meetings really useful?
I agree Chad, that is probably more important than knowing what everyone in the team is working on.
