It seems that in a lot of ways, technologists themselves are also becoming more multi-dimensional over time. The label 'Jack of All Trades' is more the norm than the exception, I think, because people pick up such a myriad of skills. It would be interesting to learn how many different 'roles' a typical IDE for Laszlo user plays.
I wonder how many Flash programmers use IDE for Laszlo? Perhaps they are looking for an easier way to quickly create a rich client interface? But those hard-won Flash skills are not lost, since it is still possible to embed certain SWF files into a Laszlo application.
Another interesting role is that of an application server user. Laszlo applications can be deployed onto machines with a Laszlo Presentation Server (LPS). How many people are building data-driven Laszlo applications, perhaps using XML and a bit of server-side code?
