I got an email from a job agency - wondering if I'd be interested in a 'innovative bluechip company' based south of Manchester. 11 jobs, all wanting Microsoft SQL Server, ASP.net, Visual Basic. It also claims a "Microsoft Certified Expert" would be "to advantage". Visual Basic isn't a real programming language - there is no point in it. It's awful. What's a "Microsoft Certified Expert"? I immediately think someone who can send an email using Outlook, or being able to do a 'really big complex relational database in Access'. I've always been under the impression that UNIX type servers are what real companies use... What's the script with all this?? I'm puzzled... surely these so-called big companies can't seriously be using Microsoft Products???
