Re: Coder to Developer

"The more you know, the less you feel you know".

I read this quote somewhere (dunno if that's the exact quote), but I feel it applies pretty well to the topic. It's about relativity. The more you know, the more you read, the broader picture you get of what's out there. It's only then dyou realize how little you actually know comparatively.

Looking at job requirements and seeing the amount of stuff a potential candidate needs to know is a pretty huge humbling experience. I agree with everything he said about colleges not teaching the "good" practical stuff. It's almost as if he read my mind about that subject. It goes back to a discussion we had a while back about "theoretical crap" (my term) vs real world stuff.
