re: When did you stop thinking of yourself as a junior/newbie? VIEW POST


Pretty much "never". There's always something to be new at or ways to vastly improve techniques in technologies in which you already have a significant knowledge-set.

That said, as craptacular as I feel my code is, it's amazing how frequently I'll look at fresh code from a self-described "expert" and realize "even as crap as I am with my coding, I could use Google and my existing skill-set to produce something better than this." Dunno whether that's self-deprecating or elitist: is there a term that adequately describes the combo?

Fundamentals go a long way. Lack of them seems to go even further (or, at least, more pervasively).
