You're requiring a bachelor's degree in Computer Science to develop Javascript? That's hilarious.

Why not ??
If you think JavaScript is just for webforms validation, then you are wrong.
JavaScript is becoming a very powerfull client side tool now.
Most of the firefox extensions were based on Javascript...
XMLHttpRequest (AJAX)
DHTML + Javascript
Widgets
...


Any software programming can be learned without a degree or diploma, however i still see the requirement for a bachelor degree at some point.

Where did I say that I believe Javascript is just for webform validation? Don't put words into my post that were not there.

The fact is that if you have an employee with a Bachelor's degree in CS, you're under-utilizing them if they're just programming Javascript. Furthermore, a candidate with a real Bachelor's of Science degree has much more attractive job options than Javascript programming.

In my experience, any degree in CS does NOT guarantee that a person can design and implement a fast, effective, easily maintained, etc. program in any language. CS degrees are vastly overrated.

It doesn't guarantee it [which I never claimed it did] but, if it is a BS [not a BA], I would expect the candidate would be much more likely to have a solid background in the field - rather than just knowing the current technologies. As far as I am concerned, a CS degree is much better qualification than any number of certifications.

Jiang Xiaofeng can you develop in JavaScript efficiently? Do you know all of the tricks to make it work in every browser out there? It takes a rather smart mind to do this. Heck, a person does not need a CS degree, I agree with you there. I do not have a CS degree and I am an author of two books and program for a living. If a company wants there applications to compete it today's world, they need someone with a solid background in JavaScript. I bet those people coding Google Maps, Google Suggest, etc. are making a pretty penny coding in JavaScript.

I think you're doing your clients a disservice focusing on JavaScript. The skills and experience in various XML technologies (XSL, XSLT) dwarf JS and even skilled use of CSS is more complex than JavaScript. Moreover, any good Java programmer can master JavaScript in a week. I hope your client has more than one recruiter fishing for talent.

Rick,

You have a very bad understanding of what JavaScript entails. I have been working wih it for ten years dealing with Netscape 4 issues and been helping people with cross-browser problems with each new generation of the browser. If you think you are such a great JavaScript developer, lets see you answer questions in the HTML and JavaScript forum!

I bet there are highly qualified CS graduates at Google writing (mostly) Javascript as we speak :roll:

I know what JavaScript entails. I think, sadly, most JavaScript developers don't. JavaScript is a simple script interpreter. It is not CSS. It is not DOM. The lack of standards creates a horrific mess which makes using JavaScript with DOM and CSS a challenge. That is something to dread, not to shout "Look Ma! I'm resolving a hideous lack of orthogonality in a putrid scripting environment". I'm not blaming JS and I think it's both useful and necessary.

I also think it's growing and getting better. Sun will integrate JavaScript in Java 6.0. They won't be shipping Groovy or JPython. I believe that use of XMLHttpRequest with JavaScript will also increase its use, dramatically. No doubt, JS developers everywhere will think that's JavaScript, too. It's not. JS is a simple toy-like scripting language used to script a zoo of poorly designed and badly thought out, non-standard browser technologies. That it can continue do that is a testament to its simplicity.

I think whether naybody uses Python or PERL or JavaScript or Java, problem solving skills matter which we all have.

If we want to talk about JavaScript, move your discussion over to the HTML and JavaScript forum and start a new topic. This forum and thread is to talk about a job, not to discuss the in and outs of ECMAScript.

You were the one who shifted the discussion away from the job and towards Javascript.
