The programming world is far too diverse for this kind of thing.

"Programmer" (or any other title, for that matter) is such a loose term that it's no more specific than referring someone to as a "builder" - you could be talking about a master stone-mason, a crane driver or a hod carrier.

Then add in the fact that programmers work in such a huge variety of organisations from tiny tech start-ups to huge non-tech corporations and their needs are every bit as diverse as their skill-sets.

Guilds and unions are great where you have a whole bunch of people doing very similar jobs but that just isn't the case here.
Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. - Mark Twain
