"The code should be understandable by the most junior dev in the team"

  • Well, I've been saying this a few times but I never said, "hire the worse dev you can" : )) At my current job recently I just lol'd looking at a funky one liner, which totally resonated with stylistic terseness I introduced when I joined. So yea when there's potential we can raise the bottom, and where there is no potential there's no point in hiring.
