  • (This is a new account, and this is my first post on use.perl. I am an IT Director who often does 'web development' (one-click-wonders) to solve often complex problems on my employer's web sites (both internal and external). However, I used to work as an application developer (C/C++) on Solaris and SCO Unix systems.)

    ... I thought I'd point out that there is a difference in perception for a reason.

    First off - an application is a complex thing with multiple sub-functions. To be an application, however, it can be deployed on the web, or on a desktop... doesn't matter.

    However, a "web developer" is commonly thought of as someone who creates functional features for a web site ... highest level of complexity of, say, a bitwise search engine. Where an application developer is considered more adept at designing and implementing more complex projects.

    So, to get around the perception, you have to talk-up the 'application' qualities of your web development. Explain that you do far more than just 'one-button-wonders'.

    Once you tackle that assumption, you can inteview on a level playing field.
