I have this guy who always post on his social media stories about how he is so good at programming and he has mastered “python” “R” and “JavaScript”. He just started programming early this year. February to be precise and thinks he is a badass programmer. Smh
How will I tell him codeacamy free certificates isn't knowing about programming and cramming syntax isn't programming also🤦🏽‍♂️

    Give him something to code with a deadline. Then he can test himself.

    Don't stick your cock down his throat just yet, considering how fucked up the market is right now you might end up working for him in the close future. Not everyone's lucky enough to work for @Root or @SortOfTested

    yeah seriously I am so long in coding, but when I see new ones saying like they are experts. I can not stop laughing, as they do not know what is real programming.

    Send him to hackerrank challenges to prove his claim?

    I met people who consider themselves as UI gurus as they have good knowledge with one or two frameworks like angular and react but have no clue about javascript prototypical inheritance

    @balvinder294 I usually just say something along ‘oh really? That’s fantastic. Then you can probably help me debugging this huge here.’

    Thing is, that when I just (pretend to) believe, they will notice that they were talking bs. I know it, he knows it, but nobody really said that.
    I like that feeling 🙃

    @dder hahah believe me, results are very scary of asking them do... you don't wanna see. and the worst thing is they would say,
    no one like other persons code, every code other than owns code is a bad code.

    Well, once in like 9yrs.
    Hm, I think you got a point here...
