Discussion on: Let's face it, we have a broken technical interview process in our industry

Well, we will definitely never agree on this point. You didn't "call B.S." on anything validly, but I understand your views are based on your personal experience.

Just please recognize that, as you (from what you've said) have little to no experience managing or hiring for a team, your ideas are based largely on conjecture and largely unevaluated theories. I'm speaking out of having done this for many years.

Just please be aware of where your expertise stops; it is all too easy to misguide young developers into making career-devastating decisions.

Yes lets agree to disagree. And I'm not expecting everyone to agree anyway. Btw I never said that I haven't done hiring or managed teams. I have done both. I was part of the company wide hiring team in 2 out of 3 companies I worked for and in a decade of being in IT I have been a project manager and team lead on multiple occasions so I'm not talking without experience here.

And I believe I'm not misguiding young developers here, I'm specifically asking people who have a say to speak up and others to honestly tell the interviews how they feel. We need to be more realistic and straightforward in this Industry. You are entitled to your opinion the same way I'm entitled to mine so lets stop accusing each other of anything. Cheers
