"Version control......what is that? I never heard of it"

Words cannot express the shock I felt when I heard this from an interviewee for junior dev.

How the FUCK do you call yourself a developer you piece-of-shit when you don't know such an essential thing?????

    @daveq The job description specifically stated that we are using Git for VCS and would need it as a requirement

    @C0D4 I perfectly understand that. However, the job description stated knowledge of Git as a requirement alongwith some experience of working in a professional role.

    @divayprakash eh, my job description stated a bachelors degree in CS as mandatory, I still got the job without it 🤷‍♂️

    Plus if your hiring a jnr you’re going to have to take some time out of you’re week anyway to guide, and teach them new tools and processes anyway, what’s a few hours on VCS?

    @C0D4 Yeah I see your viewpoint too.
