I'm trying to track down the statistics about Web developers (education attainment, etc. I know there are some stats somewhere, so if anyone has a pointer...). I imagine most, like me, do not hold a degree in computer science or software engineering (if they hold a degree at all!). That's not too say we are less capable than people that do, but we are skilled in different areas.
For the Web developer its inherently tricky (if uptake is prime 
motivation).  That said, no harm with a higher level abstraction for 
some key Web developer community profile etc. :-)
