Having just stumbled across this site, looking for a keyboard for programmers ironically, I think I have an answer to this burning question. It simply boils down to the fact that (in my American experience at least) the College/University degree programs for software development glorify irrelevant garbage, like Super-Scalable-Generic-Jargon-Speak, and make light of the skills that are actually useful. I had a teacher that demanded a design for every program we wrote, minimum length was three pages, and it had to be written like paper for a Liberal Arts class. One of my fellow students actually had to ask how to put text on a button in a Junior level class. I laughed at him, vehemently Failed out of college and now have a job writing software for business/inventory management applications.
