Code Development and Ethics
So where is the "ethics" line if you develop code, queries or some form of specialized programming?

 

If you wish to say it is completely unethical to take that from one job to another, then you are saying you must in essence forget everything you did on the prior position?

 

Or is it simply enough to re-develop the same code, without copy/paste, in the new position in order to say on th ethical side?

 

Keeping in mind, that a large reason you were hired in the new position, is the new employer hoping you create the same 'magic' you did in the last position.

 

And if your value is the knowledge you develop your measure of value to other companies, with the new model of company /employee loyalty (none either way) - in which an employer can relieve you at whim:  Where is the ethics of simply qualifying for the next job?   If you wish to say ethically you should not take any knowledge with you, then basically, what is your worth to your next employer?
