comment Have you ever hated a framework/programming language/platform but you eventually became curious in learning?
@Jeremy Ya I know, that was my jab. I guess I need to be more explicit

How do you hate something before you've learned about it?

The ratio of garbage to actual opportunity is pretty high but if your willing to dig through you can find some ok projects that can turn into good long term clients.

comment Are code reviews necessary for junior developers?
Look you guys think reviewing every line of code works for you great, I don't agree. We can diferentiate out critical systems and code from our non ciritical ones. If you can't then I guess all code is equal to you. I would rather spend the time working with the users on experience and their needs. We have way more instances of code being re-worked for not meeting requirements, usually because they weren't identified well, than bugs by far. So if your time is better spent in code reviews then great spend it there.

No one is arguing that fixing problems in review is cheaper and better, like I said its a question of diminishing returns when your reviewing all lines of code. If the problems are so easy to find in a quick scan then they probably shouldn't be being made

@Aeo saying 'Usually it means buggier' is as good as saying fast is good.
