JustThat317496dYou missed the fine print:
"...start with a language you know*"
PepeTheFrog64596dWell at least they filter themselves out
nibor406795dIt's great to get rejected after the interview process for something that could be got from your resume, isn't it!
JustThat317495d"Do you know Python?"
"Absolutely! 'Life of Brian' is my favorite, though 'Quest for the Holy Grail' is a close second"
"Not the Python we meant"
"Oh, too bad. Watch me funny walk out of here."
xMadxHatterx22995dTotal bullshit. When you've got decades of experience shipping products in multiple languages, there's no reason to get sidelined with the "but you don't know the language" B.S. if you know something comparable, which C# totally is! If you're not trying to totally cut new "green field" code on your own, but are working in a team with other experienced, responsible developers and doing pull req's with decent code reviews, you'll get all the Python you need to become effective in the first two weeks (honestly, probably less).
Sounds like a nice potential flavor of age discrimination, if you ask me...
wackOverflow81795dNext time just say you know it, and pick it up over the weekend. If you already know c#, js, ts, etc then learning one of the easiest languages(python) should be a cakewalk.
TrevorTheRat7195dYeah, complete time wasters.
Places should have to pay 50% of the time you take out to talk to them, there’s too many taking the piss these days.
