    This meme doesn't really apply to developers as research is part of the job by definition.

    We are expected to be able to analyze the problem, aquire domain-specific knowledge and requirements by interrogating the ones who should already have it and/or reading specs and other docs - and then research and develop a solution.

    Actual developers are self-training. You can't really train them like the other roles in a company. You can only provide them with time, money and access to otherwise hard-to-access (domain-specific) information - so they can train themselves.

    Code monkeys on the other hand are more like your regular production worker. You show them the templates, how to use the tools, what to modify and which patterns to apply - and they will be happy to do that over and over - and faster than a developer.
