    Senior is just a name based on time.. but if the person can not even google it then that is an issue

    What do you need to change the host file for? (genuine question)

    @theactionslacks I often use it to test a website on a new server, where I can't change the public DNS because it's not live yet. Or if your client has special requirements, like thus intranet we worked on, it wasn't on a dns, and had to be setup through a vpn and use the hostfile to point it to the correct address

    @drRoss well that is odd,senior literally means 'older', in a job it meas you did the job longer that others.. it supposed to be related to experience too... But it definitely does not mean a senior x is better at y than a not-senior x.

    Which is also a weird concept.

    @mundo03 1st of June, I'm technically a senior web-dev at my current workplace, I've worked there for 6 months, and 1st of June is the last workday of the previous "set" of web-devs at the company, we've had a massive turnover in employees lately.

    I do not count myself as superior over my coworkers, I have had much more real world experience with dev than them, but I have no formal education

    @ChainsawBaby senior includes experience on other jobs and projects, still matches the definition.

    Congratulations on your relatively new job :)

    @mundo03 You're correct in that the literal meaning of senior means older, but in reality, that isn't what it should mean for software companies. For me and certainly the company I work for, Senior Developers are the ones who are always striving to write the best code with the best technology available to them. Not only will they do that at work, but they'll also go home and write code too. They'll read up on new technologies and just tend to be a lot more dedicated to the cause. That being said, experience definitely counts for something, but it does not make you a senior.
