If you only pay your junior web developer $11/hour to handle projects by themselves, what kind of quality of work do you expect to have?

    @burswag Still the same kind of quality of work I expect from senior devs but don't expect them to work autonomously, will ensure they have mentors, that way they can grow (and earn more). Self drive /passion thing.

    @zapjelly Mentors! Ah yes, the missing ingredient.

    @burswag their prob if they don't have a senior dev to review code of junior or provide guidance. For the junior dev, see it as an opportunity and just do their best! Stackoverflow and here might help.

    @zapjelly I don't think devRant will help a new dev, it sucks up time and anytime I see a technical question asked people respond harshly and tell the OP to go to Stack Overflow

    @NathanDoesDev I agree. DevRant should be for ranting. There are plenty of sources of help out there.

    @NathanDoesDev though this post isn't exactly a rant. Sorry about that. ✌️

    @burswag you're good dude! I don't really mind the questions but it would defeat the purpose if this became a tech support forum.

    Maybe a dedicated section would work, where users can "rant" about the issues they're facing and more experienced devs can help if they want.

    At this point I'd take a job for that money 😔

    @loumorgsy are you currently unemployed?

    @burswag I have my day job which is £7 an hour and it sucks, currently teaching myself to be front end developer (then possibly move to back end once I have a job)

    @loumorgsy hmm. Well, $11/hour is seriously low for a web developer in the US. Minimum wage in my state right now is $10.50. If I'm not mistaken, junior web developers should be making at least $20/hour, but someone correct me on that one if I'm wrong.

    @burswag well I guess it'll differ from the UK for me minimum wage is £6.78 and I get paid £7 when I look for jobs they're around £12-15 so it is around double the minimum wage or higher I'm just underqualified
