    @rehman so it means even if your programming skills are very good and you have almost knowledge in wide major stuff you are not a senior until you have 6 years of exp?

    @Mba3gar yes still, you can't get to know many things in couple of years

    @rehman but i guess 6 years are too much

    I've seen people not consider themselves senior devs after 15 years and others that called themselves seniors after 2. I think the difference between them lies in what you call a senior.

    Yeaaahh, judging seniority based only upon years of experience is a bad idea. If you work for 5-10 years, but do the same exact thing, you're not senior, you're just experienced in specific part of the spectrum (which is good, but that's not all it takes). It's a tough thing to formulate, but it's combination of your soft and hard skill sets AND years of experience. So it might take some developers to reach senior level 5-10years, and others might never get there. But that's just my opinion

    When you not only know the tech in your company and know the language you use intrinsically...but also when you become a mentor to others, and become someone who others come to with questions. Once your opinions become major factors in design and you become a leader and someone who leads by example. Then you are a senior.

    Or you can do what my coworker did and just see how far you can wiggle up the bosses ass until they give you a promotion.

    I found that if people start coming to you to fix issues instead of vice versa, then you can think of yourself as a senior devloper
