    @surgiie how do you do If not by version control? just show them how ridiculous easier it would be with some learning , using some VCS and you might have some more respect with other opinions maybe, at least it worked for me this way.

    @azous yeah I was shocked too. I was even more shocked when my boss told me he didn't know what hashing and salting was. He also told me 2 days ago he didn't know what csrf was when I asked him. lol

    but I'm the junior developer?

    @surgiie lol yeah, I saw some cartoon a while ago here on devrant that said something like: no matter how experienced you are if the used technologies are new.

    Something like that. They are experienced in doing old school things. Not new "modern" things.

    @azous yeah I honestly don't feel challenged here which is why I'm always looking to get involved and collaborate in the open source community.
