GeneralA random subscription to Medium actually had something that caught my attention Pin

I end up subscribed to things to the point where I give up trying to unsubscribe.

I get Medium. i unsubscribe. a week later i get Medium again. I give up.

It's full of "think pieces" about coding, often in bucket list form ("5 habits of inexperienced programmers") that sort of thing. Boring.

Anyway, the headline of this article caught my attention but I'll edit for the forum. My kid-sister* keeps it less kid-sister safe than I do, but out of respect for other peoples' kid-sisters i'll edit the title for the forum

*(okay so she has a kid of her own now but she's 14 years younger than I so she'll always be my kid-sister. what?)

A Programmer Explained to me why I'm a <know-nothing> and a <doody head> in the same sentence: tests rule out the people that think outside the box[^]


The real secret to hiring amazing engineers is to have an already excellent engineer, who can think outside of the box, do the interview.
Talented engineers attract talented engineers. These engineers then breed while on a project together and allow the process of mitosis to occur and create new teams that spawn off the original project. A code test on its own is useless — and biased.


Yes to this. So much this.
Real programmers use butterflies
