While he and I know WebObjects quite well, I think it's safe to say there are only few people here in Germany who know it at all. I'm personally convinced (and have seen this affirmed by the two WOWODC talks about Lean Startup and Fluffy Bunny, excellent talks by the way) that WO itself is a great technology to get things up and running very fast. However, what if the business grows and he needs to hire more people?

I find it hard to find actually skilled people period. If someone is not willing to learn WO then I think that they are either thinking about the job they will get after this one or not interested in learning something new. In either case, I don't want them. And I tend to be cautious about people with too many certifications. Passing tests makes you a good student, not a good developer.
