I disagree. Not only do I have a 2-year degree in computer
programming, I have worked with writers who 4-year degrees
in programming, and all of us have had to interview SMEs.
The ability to read code or a background in a certain subject
will not guarantee you specific knowledge of a project.
Darn it! :-)
