That's not a typical offer
asgs96101yIt is funny you thought "see afterwards"
Make up your mind that you won't join. Meet them to see how bad they actually are and have fun
Well what's the worst that can happen if you go there and do spend time on educating yourself?
Fr6cx111y@electrineer yeah well.. i'll see what impression I get after my interview I guess. Worst thing in general would be that they could fire me I would say, but that would be kinda weird especially (potentially) if I would be the only developer.
It's also one of the questions I want to ask in the upcoming job interview. To ask what their priorities are and if there are any opportunites to take workshops / seminars or whats their general take on that topic.
That's not a dev job, that's a "computer guy" job...
I’ve had a job like that. It was hell! I was the only technical person in the place and they expected me to be able to do everything IT related.
It might be ok but I’d get them to agree to a training budget and make sure they’re happy to pay for any software you need.
The company I worked for used everything open source because their thinking was that if they paid for a developer then they wouldn’t have to pay for anything else.
They also went bankrupt a few months after I left.
Just make sure you do your research on them.
sjzurek4631yStory of my life....
Just make sure the boss isn't a dickhead. It can be a great learning experience, but can be hell on the other end. If you are lucky you will love this job.
I had some luck and I've learned things I've never even expected I'll come close to.
