Seniority is Irrelevant

Seniority is measured differently in each company, and most frequently, it only takes into account how many years you have been working as a programmer, instead of how hard or easy it is what you do every day. I have seen seniors copy and paste code, or even worse, write their own spaghetti code; and juniors solve the most complicated problems noone else could.

Do I know of a better way to measure skills? Heck yeah, see Programmer Competency Matrix:

It's all about passion.

Passion is key, but so is experience! If only seniority indicated a surplus of relevant experience....
