No, what I’m saying is more along the lines of Kevin Barnes’ latest article.

Ah. Well, I'm not sure how I was supposed to intuit that from the single question, "Et tu, sauoq?" I guess I'll have to try harder next time... ;-)

Thanks for the link. It was a semi-interesting blog post in a blah-blah-blah plus a dash of common sense sort of way. I enjoyed it.

I don’t believe you should hire a “Perl programmer” or a “PHP programmer,” specifically.

Would you feel more comfortable with my phrasing if I changed it to "programmer with Perl experience" and "programmer with PHP experience"? Or are you really suggesting that you shouldn't hire someone with a particular skillset or experience in the technology you are using? Specifically? Because that just doesn't sound right to me, truth be told. And I don't think that's anything close to what Mr. Barnes was saying. The reality is that, if I'm going to hire someone to work on a project, I'm going to prefer someone who is already familiar with the technology and the problem domain. Other things being equal, of course. I simply want to minimize how much I'm paying for their learning curve(s).
