  • You are absolutely right that they are the same thing. The only reason I might not want to hire a "web development" guy is the perception that some "web development" people don't realize the reverse: that web development is application development and needs to be done to high standards.

    If you were applying at my employer I'd be pushing as hard as possible for them to bring you on. I've seen what you do well enough to know you do it to high standards. I can't believe that anyone who might have a problem hiring a "web development" guy would have a problem with you. The (perceived) problem is not with the medium but with the methodology.

    Ask them how knowledge of web application development invalidates the other skills you have which qualify you for the job. If possible, try to get a chance to show them what you can do.
