One of the problems with current developers is a basic lack of programming knowledge. Sure people can pick up a book and learn C# or Java but that doesn't say much about if they can program.

People learn way to much "parrot fashion" in schools and universities about how to solve a pre-set problem in the same way as everyone else, but no one seems to know how to program with core concepts any more.

I'm different on that respect, I consider myself language agnostic, although I can program in many many languages I like having the ability and knowledge to pick up a language syntax manual and understanding it in a day or two, it means I can always pick the right language for the job.
