Recently I discovered the WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) and was stunned at what it can do. Granted, the discovery was completely by accident, but I found it none the less. The WMI can mistify a lot of developers, especially new ones, so granted I was a little nervous and leery when I dove further into it, but what I found is that it can be an invaluable tool.
Here is the quandary most coders face. Most of us are extremely talented, and from time to time venture out into the freelance world, especially students, most using a coding site like Kasamba, Rent-A-Code and some other up and coming ones. The problem we face is there are coders on there, with little or no talent at all, offering to do entire e-commerce sites for $100. Does that not make it difficult for those of us who actually know what we're doing?
Well this is a belated Happy Holidays to everyone. I know it's quite a bit late but I hope all had a happy and wonderful Holiday season, I know that besides all the snow I did.
