    In essence, he said that today’s Java-savvy college grad is tomorrow’s pizza delivery man. Their skills are so easily outsourced that they’re heading for near-term obsolescence.

    Dewar stresses that he’s not against Java itself. But the fact that Java is taught as the core language in so many colleges is resulting in a weak field of computer science grads, he says.

    The reason: students’ reliance on Java’s libraries of pre-written code means they aren’t developing the deep programming skills necessary to make them invaluable. Colleges, alarmed by falling CS enrollment, have dumbed down the course requirements. Consequently, CS majors sail through a curriculum of Math Lite, earning a smiley-face on their papers for “developing” projects using pre-built libraries.

    .Net is like those microwave pop corn packets .. You just put in the microwave set up the timer and u r done ...
    Everything in Dot Net is ready made .. All u need to do is just configure it to suit your requirements ..

    and what is wrong with that? it's just like in any other line of work, you can be creative and very good at what you do in which case you don't have problems finding work or you can be mediocre and better be a pizza delivery boy
