Turns out being a COBOL programmer isn't a guaranteed job for life in the age of the Cloud.
So, given the rapid speed of change in the landscape of IT industry, I have to wonder how relevant our experiences and lessons would be to the young'uns.
There's no point in telling the younger folk anything, they already know it all. Wait until they're older with a little more experience and find out they still have much to learn.
No, perfect pitch is where you toss a banjo into a dumpster and it hits the accordion.
Ubuntu already saw the light and is pushing even harder towards convergence.
With Microsoft announcing their going to have different UIs for different form factors, and Apple going as far as having completely different OSes under thei different UIs on different form factors, the only true convergence story left standing is Ubuntu. One Unity, one experience, on all different form factors.
Let the market decide.
As a Candian I... uh....
The expensive part comes from sticking a credit card in the spokes to make it sound like a real motorcycle.
I remember reading about this problem 30 years ago when I was a young programmer.
It seems that the tech industry is not the only place this is happening. Journalism, too, seems to be hiring only young and inexperienced people and paying the price.
What, line them up agaist the wall and shoot them? That's the classic final solution for those who disagree with the ascendent political thought.

Magnify. Zoom in on the reflection in his sunglasses. Enhance. There's the killer's face right there. Sergeant Takerdown and Sergeant Booker, go pick up our unsub and bring her in for questioning.
Please please make sure Jar Jar comes back. He was what made episodes I and II. I'm so looking forward to getting my picture taken with him, and maybe R2D2 in mouse ears, at Walt Disney World.
I hope they do up a Tattooine cantina as a family-style restaurant and some animatronic singing Ewoks having a hoe-down would be most excellent. Maybe they could transform that Epcot sphere into a deathstar for the lulz and have daily incinerations of the Canada pavilion.
It'll be the swagalicious product that will remake Episodes VII-IX what the originals were: a massive toy sales ad campaign. Nobody does that better than Disney. Nobody. Mees-a thinks-a so.
The basic assumption that programming is a young man's game is simply being pulled out of the author's ass wholesale and in one piece.
When you base assumption is invalid, the rest of your argument is moot.
Most of the 1% to
Yes indeed, fully 60% of Americans are in the top 1%.
Yes, damn Canonical for not toeing the party line as set forth by the self-appointed central committee of the supreme soviet who decide what The Software should be. The whole gang of miscreants should be banished to the gulag until reeducated properly to the free market, that is to say the market fee of competitive ideas. Only then will the One True Way be realized. Until then, they are stealing bread from the mouths of our software children.
This is truly the year of the Linux desk -- on a phone.
I hear Monster Cable is coming out with a line of gold-plated bifocals that allow the discriminating visualphile to be able to take full adcantage of the quality offered by 400 to 600 DPI.
