Thanks for the great post! I think it's important that we discuss these issues in a constructive, action oriented way, as you do here.

I particularly like your point that the codebases are different than the ones we used in school, whatever that education may be for you. I'm a strong believer in the importance of soft skills as key to success and happiness in development careers, something that is often not talked about in a formal education setting.

The article 7 hard truths about starting your career as a developer addresses some similar concerns and pieces of advice that you offer here.
