New Programmers


brogrammerXML Markup has been the bane of a generation of coders, who have had to learn the small nuiances associated with it.  Really, having to learn specific markup isn’t the best way for us to train new programmers.

I bring up how we train new programmers for a simple reason-as our society continues to move more and more into an online verison of itself, we simply need more people with high level computer skills and I don’t mean simple excel or CMS here, I mean the people who create those systems in the first place.  When you combine the need with the ability for people to make a killing with a single great idea and the great press coming from programmers like the folks at Facebook, isn’t it likely that we’re going to have an influx of people who might, or might not be getting into the industry for the same reasons that all of us did?
