People with two years of high school classes who have done some "HTML programming" and have Google are professionals now.

So interviewing a candidate I sketch out some simple thing, usually on a white board, to write. It would take you and I less than a minute thought, take longer to write out than think out. New programmer should get it. You know, "sort three integers" or "which of three is greatest", etc. Don't worry about coding, I really want to hear how they think it out.

So I had one guy say to me "I can do this if I am hired - I don't really want to give my labor away". Then he was puzzled when I immediately stood up and thanked him for coming in and said "I'll consider you for the position" and he was OK with that... I considered him till I got him just past the front desk.

Arrogant 25 year old "professional".

No, not because we are getting old.
