    SharePoint developer still needs to know a lot:

    - OOB functionality - html/css/javascript for front end;
    - server side for farm and CSOM;
    - asp.net mvc for remote hosted;
    - apps, exchange, etc.
  • - Almost no farm dev related questions
    - Cloud orientation (apps, javascript, REST, etc.)
    - remote hosted apps (asp.net mvc, CSOM, REST)
    - good knowledge of configuration and OOB features
  • A short survey for the user group to get some statistics.
