  •  There is still a demand for mainframers.... That's (1+ / 0-)

    the area I primarily work.  For shear number crunching and data manipulation, a decent mainframe can run circles around servers.  But, yeah, to a certain extent the field has changed to programmer/analysts deciding what needs to be changed with a warm body that can type in India/China/Pakistan/wherever typing in the changes and coming up with a clean compile - but that doesn't mean the software 'works'!

    The project I'm currently working on.... I've done around 40 hours of analysis/design/learning and 7 to code and get a clean compile (with messing around a bit in there too).  I'll be doing at least 40 hours worth of testing to make sure the stuff is processing correctly.
