    Now I imagine this conversation:

    "oh so you have worked with js, sql and c# for 5 years?"


    "And how much did you work with each during that time?"

    "About 40% js and 60% C# and SQL"

    "I see, then I'll just write down your experience:
    * 2 years in JS
    * 1.5 years in C#
    * 1.5 years in SQL"

    Ffs! Do they really expect you to have 12 * 5 = 60+ years experience?

    Note to self:
    Make "hello world" in every language now.
    In 5 years time come back and update grammar to "Hello, world."

    5 years experience right there

    It’s weird. I see this all the time on devRant, but never in real life, at least not here in Denmark.

    Usually they write something like that they need a developer with X years of experience as a general dev. Then a list of things that the dev should either know about or have experience with.
