It's just that there are a lot of people who say that, but few of them have the discipline to even get something that works at a minimum level, much less get to a reasonable standard of functionality.

Which is really the litmus test that I think those interviewing are looking for. Every applicant wants a job, many show the desired interest and enthusiam, less have the perseverance to actually see the project through to a releasable state (suffering along with that the maintenance and enhancement phases).

This is analogous to the belief that those who completed a degree program or certification are dedicated enough to see things through (whether or not this is an appropriate gauge of dedication is not my point, I think you can see the corelation).

[Corion]: Hmm. I think overnight I decided on simplifying some code. I have plugin classes that do data import (.csv, .yml, .json) and for that create objects on which then ->load() is called. But YAML::XS doesn't have an object, so I wrote my own wrapper.
[Corion]: This evening, I'll kill that wrapper again, and just call LoadFile() in the plugin class directly instead of creating a go-between object for no real gain.
