Yes, it means that he has to invest some time to get his head around
new
concepts, but then again that's how the technologically field always
was.

That's how the non-i technology field always was, but unfortunately (yes
UNfortunately) that's not how the i technology field was. Seriously,
what _new_ concepts did a RPG programmer need to learn from RPG on the
38 to early 90s RPG to late 90s RPG? Sure, ILE was introduced in there,
but _many_ developers didn't (and still don't) take advantage of what
was offered there. Other than that what did we get as programmers that
forced us to keep current in our training? A new opcode or two every
other year? Hardly a parallel to the massive evolution that happened
(and continues to happen) in the non-i world. The i community is
starting to get a taste of it with Java -> PHP, Pase -> Linux, but we're
still rather isolated.
