Those aren’t the guys you’re going to bend over backwards to hire to frame your walls.

The whole story seems to be built on the premise that the only skill a carpenter has is the ability to drive a nail straight, making any notion of an “interview” farcical. There’s a hell of a difference between a framer, a cabinet-maker, and a furniture-maker. There is, however, a lot of brown stain, and brown shingling, and brown brick. Questions like this are exactly how a good interviewer separates a blinkered newbie from an expert with perspective.

Given all of the above, the true subtext of this “joke” is that calling yourself a programmer entitles you to a job.

But the really galling part is that the “calling yourself a programmer” bit .

When Apple made a phone, it turned out it wasn’t really competing in the handset business; it was competing for the next dominant personal computing platform.

The more I think about an Apple car, the more I think that it might be the basis of their future “computing environment”: a space that is completely aware of and responsive to its occupant(s).

If a programmer walked into an interview and gave answers this evasive about how many projects he’d done in Java, he’d be an obvious no-hire.

Not having certain experience is one thing; not even knowing what experience you have is another matter entirely.

Throwing on a beret does not a national theme make. Could we be witnessing the start of a generation-long leadup to contention in the hat-hobbling category? Finally, we have a couple of new awards for 2015: There’s a specific form of logical fallacy or cognitive bias that I’ve never seen explicitly listed in collections of such fallacies or biases.

Did not expect anyone to be able to pull of a “tree” theme this well. It is related to the “Fallacy of False Cause” and to the “Illusion of Control” bias.

“Programmers” are the architects and structural engineers who design the buildings; they get programming languages and frameworks and IDEs to hammer the nails.

I have no doubt that the industry is full of coders banging out one CRUD app after another, but their work bears a lot more relation to architects customizing a house design to a particular site (or, a better analogy, 19th-century railroad engineers applying the standard truss designs to design bridge after bridge) than it does to contractors framing house after house based on the designs they’re handed.

My experience is that most people have a natural intuition that every event can be traced back to a prior event that caused it.
