I think you expect too much from your "average" customer in terms of vetting a "programmer".

Makes about as much sense as me making a medical diagnosis, which didn't involve just an "aspirin".

There are "laws" to protect the consumer. Same difference.

And when I talk of "developing", that includes:

Scope / problem definition
User requirements analysis
Current system analysis
Preliminary / detail design
Presenting, gaining acceptance
Planning, estimating and allocating resources
Executing, monitoring and controlling
Unit, integration and system testing
User training and acceptance testing
Documentation
Turnover to production / maintenance.

Oh, and "programming".

And I have to carry $2,000,000 in "liability insurance". There's my "cred".
The Master said, 'Am I indeed possessed of knowledge? I am not knowing. But if a mean person, who appears quite empty-like, ask anything of me, I set it forth from one end to the other, and exhaust it.'
