you need to have a certain disposition to be a great coder. Not some circa 2000 "web developer". You have to be comfortable, day in day out, recognizing patterns and solving problems using the best possible approaches. I cannot stress enough how many completely incompetent "programmers" that thrive on coasting, pointing fingers, and social engineering their way through a career for which they have no aptitude.

well no most coders are rather clumsy. Look I don't have time for morning snuggles or can can boards.. Don't force nerds to talk about their code, omg we're trying to avoid that. Just show me who to beat the specs out of and let's program, muffukas

I would strongly disagree. In 1995 relational theory and practice was well understood by a large set of developers and had stable, well documented implementations. Raw Hadoop and the associated computational model is not at that level of stability, documentation and usability. In addition the relational model applies to many business problems, large and small. Hadoop is generally applicable and cost efficient only for larger, more complex problems.

you can't strongly anything as an AC, sorry buddy

Don't be a fool, you expect what you consider you're worth, what they say they consider you're worth. It may be a gamble on future successes, but ensure a rock solid piece of the future pie if you go that route. A smiley face, promises, and a handshake doesn't mean jack shit in the real world. You can, and will, take that to the bank.

You are a fool. Persistence is the only strategy that works, and it's an honest strategy because users are passionate about this site. You want people to complain for a bit, and then fade away. Many have been on this site for over a decade, and expect some reciprocation of the loyalty for their contributions to the site over the years. Again, you are a fool and a buffoon sir. Good night.
