Discussion on: What Defines a "Junior" Developer? 🤷🏻‍♀️

One simple definition I have is personal ownership. As a junior, I found myself in a position of execution and not so much innovation. As I progressed in my career, that changed slightly to where I'm engineering solutions that made the area's discipline even more refined.

I would often tell the newer developers, "when you see code or commits and it bothers you on a spiritual level where you have to fix it right now, then you know you're a Senior"
