comment The number of years experience needed to be a contract developer
+1 Yep, you do need to be strict with your finances and plan, with the invoice periods of some companies it can get tight at the start. I've been contracting for the last two years (developing for over ten years) and you have to plan your contracts well, this gets easier over time, after a while the agencies come to you with offers when they know you have a contract ending.

comment At which point do you “know” a technology enough to list it on a resume
My CV is far from empty and that is how I have always worked. I said used in a project, that could be personal or in a job. The majority of my learning is outside working hours and I may never get to use a technology in a role but may know it enough from personal projects.

Disagree, if I ask for a specific tech in the interview I will quiz you.
