I am a bioinformatics programmer and database programmer
in a genetics research lab. My original interest in Unicode stemmed
from the fact that I studied Chinese in school and spent some
years in several countries in Asia, including China and Thailand.
Understanding and applying Unicode (especially UTF-8) and W3C (XHTML,
XML, CSS, ...) standards has most definitely allowed us to
write more powerful and flexible applications in the labs
where I work. I am often surprised when
I meet other programmers --both those fresh out
of school and veterans-- who don't have a clue about Unicode. Unicode
and internationalization should be required courses for kids studying
Computer Science these days ...
I suspect that there is probably a lot of occupational diversity
among the members of this list.
