1979 i did a test and was employed as a programmer at the Post Office in Sweden. (I had no knowledge about programming except some theoretical but there was a lack of programmers at that point in Sweden.)
The computer was an IBM mainframe and the lang was COBOL and assembler.
Learned COBOL by a self study course and the rest by experience.
I suppose you have a source for this...? Oh, BTW, a russian source will not impress me.
The main problem with the usage of these kind of tools is that they often is used as a remedy for the lack of skill and knowledge by the programmers.
And they of course always fails that.
Managers without managing skills in the area of IT projects = easy target for selling tools.
I've been at my current company 25 years now. Based on what I heard people saying about me (often in third hand by people that had worked with me and is now based at other companys) I'm technically and methodically in top among comparable professionals and very good at taking in new areas of software systems. I have also never seen anyone be "in full speed" after 3 months. And by full speed I mean handling the application/system as good as one that have worked with it e g 5 years.
Of course, I would had a better career if I had switched jobs much more often. But not all people is career oriented, some like me like the job we're doing where we are and like our coworkers and therefore decides to stay. OTOH I'm a dinosaur that began programming 1979 and is probably obsolete.
Actually, Hollandes popularity poll number was raised after this affair was published.
In France, having a mistress is a natural thing. The only requirement is handling it discrete. In Hollandes case he did that, but the journalists did nevertheless find it out when they found that he leaved his resident through a backdoor and went to the mistress on a bicycle.
..."The closest you're going to get to needing to support millions of unique users on the first day, and hundreds of thousands simultaneously are things like MMO launches and WoW expansion packs or something like google+"
That has mainframe systems done for decades. (Think airline booking systems and banks.) And they do it quite well.
It's not only about "knowing of right vs wrong", maybe the more important point is whether they can *control* their behavior.
This point is also why we should not put children in prisons.
There is no such thing as "safe" radiation, so eliminating all man-made causes is a good thing, even if the levels are lower than background in some areas.

Manning released information that shows US military committing war crimes - ordered ultimately by US government. Which is the same as the country.
War criminals have no right to judge anyone else.

People die because the don't eat and because of infections. They don't eat because they have to use all their money to get he drug. And they get infections becuase they don't have access to clean injection needles - mainly because of the criminalization.
I don't recommend you to work in Finland...
