    I haven't seen the "settling" part. I've seen them ask for the love child of Donald Knuth and Steve Jobs with a cherry on top (and not just any cherry - it has to be Ranier) and reject anyone not so decorated. Then complain in the media about the shortage of skilled developers.

    To give you some context of what we were "taught" were I study in years one and two,

    HTML
    Basic HTML i.e use
    HTML Code:
    <div id="example"></div>
    absolutley no HTML5
    CSS
    CSS basics i.e float left and right ect. no css3
    PHP
    How to connect to a database and login ect. using MySQL, no mention of security, no mention of PDO, no mention of OOP hell it was year three before we they mentioned PDO and even at that said "don't worry about OOP just now" hell the little OOP I do know is from you guys, I'm sitting with the manual now
    JavaScript
    No mention of manipulating the DOM, advised to debug via using alerts...yes alerts not console.log
    Action script 3
    Yes...really
    XML
    Full credit to the lecturer on this one he knew his stuff and was always there to point tutorials out to us, easily the best lecturer in the place, we got him for PHP in year three
    SQL
    Another great lecturer who was unfortunately now retired but was helpful
    jQuery
    I taught as a legitimate language not for what it is just a JavaScript library
    Business admin
    How to make a gantt chart, useful I guess??
    Sales
    Basically business class show horned in
    Photoshop
    Make pretty pictures...ooooo
    Personal development planning
    No not really about personal growth it might as well have been a bloody home economics class at times...I **** you not
    Sound and vision
    Learn about all type of compression in audio and video, sizes ect.



    Also what is "D" I'll google it but never heard of it, I was aware of R although never used it.


    You lot tell me is that really the skill set for anything really? Personally I'd say I've improved sometimes simply by reading your throw away comments but even at that still no where near good enough for a junior position

    If you can write "basic" HTML you're ahead of everyone in my office except me. Throw in PHP, SQL and jQuery and you'd be #2 on the development team for sure. Now, granted, there are some people here who can do SQL and HTML with coaching and oversight, but I'm very nervous to give them permissions on $SERVER['DOCUMENT_ROOT'] for any property we have. Add to this the fact that they can hardly pay me enough ("bonuses", a key carrot they threw me in negotiations, haven't happened here since 2012), so there's no #2 developer on the horizon, I'm afraid, not to mention they're a tad thick on working remotely (I'm technically allowed one day of five at home but don't take it quite that often).

    As for "D", I don't know if it'll take off, but I've found what I've learned so far to be interesting. It's too bad I guess that schools move at institutional speeds, but as a former teacher I understand somewhat ... it would take a lot of effort to move your curriculum guides/syllabi forward as fast as the pace of modern development. That said, no OOP is a crime/sin. It's been around long enough that it should be taught in some way. If you learned jQuery you already have OOP experience, but not "PHP OOP" experience, which is a slightly different flavor.

    Keeping up ... it's a conundrum for those of us in the professional world, too ... how do I keep up with new stuff and still do the original stuff they hired me to do?

    Well, thanks ...

    I've considered it and would like to, actually, but I'm a tad gun shy --- I don't know if I'm a great fit, or even when I'm going to have time to update the online resume or do anything else. An 8-9 hour day (without the extra ~2 hours to commute to/from the office) would be really nice, and the salary would probably be a good upgrade for us.

    I know my brother has advised me to get a new position and my wife would like to have me working from home (she works away from the house 3 days/week, so I wouldn't be distracted except maybe Monday and Friday, and I *think* she could keep herself busy with plenty of other projects during work hours)

    And then there's the "all the things" requirements. I've got 6+ years here, plus the consultancy and "web work" I did in the 00's in PHP/JS, but I'm kind of afraid I'd be seen as a "cowboy" as I've not worked with much in the way of MVC, MariaDB, Looker, Pentaho, Chef/Puppet/Jenkins/Razor, AWS, etc. OR *teams* (actually, I've really longed to have someone with some understanding of code respond to me in the company bug tracker ....)

    I've had a brief intro to Swift (iOS) but would be a total noob at it (we've done all the mobile work here in HTML/JS), and I use VirtualBox instead of VMWare (although I'm on their mailing list), Mantis instead of JIRA, and Git without Github or Bitbucket (although I do have a Github account). I haven't done much OAUTH; I do have experience with a couple Google API's and some FaceBook API stuff also.

    I can write English and SOW and stuff like nobody's business, but that's a skill anyone with a degree and a GPA of 2.75+ ought to be able to do (mine was 3.5+, so no issues there).

    Just kind of seems that for everything you want, I'm just a few inches off the mark.

    I noted that actually you have several IT openings. Is this due to expansion, or was there a mass exodus? Is the company well-established and liable to be there for many years, in your opinion?

    I was pretty interested until I read that I had to live in the US. Unfortunately I am from the great white north.

    I've been working from home since the new year (worked out a deal with my boss) and I've been loving it. My productivity has skyrocketed and the client loves it. Plus it's silent here, whereas in the office it sounds like a zoo. I'm not sure I could go back if this deal fizzles out.

    Good luck with the applications!
