New kid came to me in my break (while I was playing LoL) saying I should start coding (he had no clue what my role within the company is).
Said that if I won't get a career in league, I could just (as if it's done in a few minutes) learn coding and make a website with thousands of users (as if that is just done like 1 2 3).
Then with a big grin on his face he proceeded to say "if you ever have some issues with making websites, I could just come to him and he can teach me the basics of Javascript, HTML, CSS and PHP".
So I said: "and who are you?"
He told me his name and what he is going to do within the company.
So I said with a big grin on my face: "Ah, so you're the new kid the boss told me about, nice to meet you, from today on, I'll be your Senior."
I then saw his big grin disappear
then with a big smile on my face I proceeded to say: "If you ever have some issues, please come to see me and I'll be happy to teach you the basics of Javascript, HTML, PHP and CSS"

Then he walked away :^)

    @EldrichWeb indeed :)
    guess the guy never will have a big mouth to me again :p
    He thought I didn't code because he saw my work laying on my desk (which was just some finance stuff from the project I'm working on)

    Well, guess that's what you get for having your ego up so high against people you don't know

    Shame man.... poor kid. I can imagine the awkward feeling he gets when he sees you.

    @Banele Luckily, I have a reputation for having no hard feelings at my work so :p

    What happened today won't affect the working relationship in my eyes (if he comes up with a question, I will just help him like I would help any other)

    @lunorian While I do agree that it's an easy-ish language, the problem is that most of our customers run their sites on generic webhosts where NodeJS support is only available if you rent a VPS.

    @lunorian like the people we build the sites for know what heroku is or are able to maintain it xD
    all we do is build the sites, zip them up and deliver them.
