I can't speak for the others, but I know I am grateful
for such previous experience in this field. Although it
might not be absolutely necessary, all that Software
Development Kit (SDK) documentation, all those manuals
for development systems, and all the documentation for
software components (COM, ActiveX, Delphi VCL, etc.)
often benefit greatly from actual programming experience.

Sorry, the above was not intended as flame-bait. If you
disagree, then I must not have communicated clearly
enough...let me speak up a bit.

Regards to all,
