I once interviewed for a developer job and was told right in the interview that I wasn’t getting considered further specifically because I was dressed too nicely and didn’t look like a developer.
That HR guy was eventually let go from that company so I take solace in that.
Yipes. Glad that person got let go, too. His statement certainly demonstrated his prejudices about what a developer is, and that those prejudices probably came from watching too much Silicon Valley and Mr. Robot.
