Tech Skills Not Enough for a Job in 2010?

  • IT Management; By Sharon Gaudin (Posted by tadelste on Dec 1, 2005 7:25 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: Editorial
Within a few years, having a strong technical ability may not be enough to get you a job.

That's the warning coming from Gartner, Inc., an industry analyst firm. Being a specialist in a specific technology, like Linux, Windows or database administration, isn't going to be enough of a calling card in the not-so-distant job market.

''Let's just say it's no longer going to be a question of just having good technical ability -- of having a specialty,'' says Diane Morello vice president of research at Gartner. ''If you're just maintaining a specialization without raising their caliber, it's not going to be enough... Companies will need people who are broader. The people I'm talking about are 'versatilists'.''

[Ed: Apparently, the people at Gartner have nothing better to do that make awful forecasts about the future that rarely come to pass. Here's another one. How many times have you heard a recruiter say your skills were too broad? tadelste]

Apple's nod to Linux

  • Seattle Post Intelligencer; By Todd Bishop (Posted by tadelste on Dec 1, 2005 6:59 PM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story; Groups:
Apple filed its annual Form 10K with the Securities and Exchange Commission today, and there was a notable addition to the otherwise standard boilerplate about the risks faced by the company. Everything in this excerpt is the same as in last year's 10K, except the new part I've put in bold.

The Company believes that decisions by customers to purchase the Company's personal computers, as opposed to Windows-based systems, are often based on the availability of third-party software for particular applications such as Microsoft Office. The Company also believes the availability of third-party application software for the Company's hardware products depends in part on third-party developers' perception and analysis of the relative benefits of developing, maintaining, and upgrading such software for the Company's products versus software for the larger Windows market or growing Linux market.

Ok, so -rc3 wasn't so good.

[ Everybody chorus now: "Nooo?" ]

Ajax and Mozilla XUL with JavaServer Faces: Loading Resources With Weblets

This article introduces a new open source project - Weblets - which can be found on the website ( The goal of this open source project is to provide JSF component writers with a facility that can serve resource files out of a Java archive (JAR), rather than serving them from the web application root file system. Unlike traditional web applications, which have statically configured URL mappings defined in web.xml, there is a need for dynamic configuration of URL mappings, based on the presence of a component library JAR. In essence, Weblets provide developers with an easy way to package web application resources in the same Java archive (JAR) that their implementation code resides in.
