    Well, it's still better than some companies in Nigeria that requires a MSC for a junior developer position.

    And most of the computer science students are retards so they end up being high school math teachers, so they end up hiring drop outs anywayπŸ˜‚

    Since they've not mentioned time traveller, you should consider putting it on your resume

    8+ years of experience is retarded for any dev job, even if the technology has existed for longer.

    I have 20 years of Javascript experience.

    But it's not like ES6 even resembles livescript/ES262.

    I'm a "decent enough" JS developer now, but not because of years. Javascript has always been a "side" thing for me — to learn mootools, jquery, underscore, backbone, ember, nodejs, angular, vue & react through the years? That has been more effort for me than for a fulltime frontend dev with 1 year experience... I have always paid attention to the JS scene with a bit of a halfassed attitude, because it's just not my thing.

    In development, total years do say *something* of course.

    But your very recent experience, the complexity of tasks you've worked on during the last 1-2 years... that says a whole lot more.

    20years JS experience? WOW!@bittersweet

    @leksyib For a little bit actually did some "fullstack js" around 97/98... people think node was the first, but netscape server ssjs ran (non-concurrent, precompiled) javascript server pages. Suicide inducing. Much like php cgi scripts in the early days, except no debugging or logging, and excruciatingly slow.

    Since the destruction of Gallifrey in the Time War you just can't find people with more experience with a technology than it's been around for love nor money

    I saw something similar so I applied with my cover letter looking something like they ' pssst fuckwad all your applicants are lying to you... XXX hasn't even been around for ten years' not sure why but I didn't hear back

    I remember that the creator of React retweeted it saying that he didn't meet the requirements.

    @bittersweet you have worked with js since before I was born.

    @Gobbas Haha, but most teenage devs with 1-2 years of xp are better at it then me, was my point 😜

    Time is not a valid unit for expressing skill, people might come from comparable languages, or just learn fast. That's why you see good companies asking for "You understand things like concurrency/async, memoizing closures, NodeJS lambdas, and could implement two way binding in the frontend without using a framework" or something like that. Some set of skills / knowledge points required for the job, which you can test during an interview.
