I notice a similar trend with people who have Computer Science or similar university degrees. Typically, there tends to be a large section on their CV/resumÃ© that details their one programming project. And they're so proud of it.
Now, I'm not university educated, so please ignore my obvious resentment towards some of these folks, but I've had applicants boast of being able to write a a simple appointment system (PHP/SQL) for a service (say, a barber shop) in just three months!
Now, to me, that should take thirty minutes to code, three hours to debug and perhaps three days to smarten up in HTML form (why do people think that 'I can write code' means 'I am a graphic designer'?).
It just seems that universities aren't churning out programmers with any worth anymore. Wasn't there a time when having a degree meant you were good at something other than filling out a student loan form?
