asgs699766dUnless you have his level of calmness in your mind and the kind of confidence he has in himself, I think you should take it seriously. Be it studying or appearing for interviews or cracking some coding competition
At the same time, there is no need to panic at all. Be calm (like he is), know what you want to learn or what your aim is, write up a plan towards achieving it and start executing that plan
Hazarth105565dI agree with the guy, from my experience the hunger to learn is valued the most at good companies. Most of them will want to teach you their tech stack and their ways of doing things anyway.
For example in my case, I was always good in programming, love it, learn in my own time and all that, never much cared for school except the subjects I enjoyed, the rest I simply crammed or cheated on. I got my first job in a language I never used, subject I never learned using frameworks I never heard about. Years later, Im still with them and being considered the most experienced there, and built great team relationships with everyone. The pay is not the best, its a small company, but damn, I love the place, the work and the people... Yet if I had to change jobs Im confident I could pull it again, working with anything in anything as long as It's computer related, because its a topic I love
