      Why am I ultimately not surprised that Mr "I'm a 'Top Developer'" has got less than 3 years in the industry... My bloody laptop bag has more experience in the workplace than he does.

      Unfortunately, not many multi-nationals would let me architect infrastructure for them when I was at school, so I'm never going to be considered one of the greats

        My limited years of experience in the industry converted very quickly into a 650/d rate outside of London. That's because I am a 'Top Developer' and you are a laptop bag

          Well done - we are all very proud. I'm sure you're an excellent developer, but IMHO your arrogance and over confidence demonstrates a lack of overall experience. Your comments in this thread have been telling.

              Yes I have heard that from a lot of people in this forum including the topic starter, that you need some sort of special or as you call it 'overall' experience to become a contractor. You can keep believing that your years of experience actually matter in the job market whilst quietly warming the bench. The reality as I said any highly intelligent developer that I graduated with will leave you grey hairs behind after spending a couple of years in the industry.

                Well I'm a grey-haired oldster. I've been contracting for 20 years and my first and still lowest-ever rate was £750. You don't want to know what I'm on now. I don't think that makes me "special" in any way, mostly I'm just lucky that I am in a very in-demand niche and pretty good at what I do. Maybe when you get a bit older you'll learn some humility to go with your self-declared rocket-scientist intelligence. It's worth it, believe me.

                    Oh one can barely wait for hubris to come calling with this young padawan.

                    One can appreciate why he hasn't got an accountant any more: he knows it all.

                    However did we s get all this stuff working back in the day without having started programming at 7.

                    I think computers were still running with magnetic core memory and transistor CPUs were the new coming thing when I was that age.

                      +1 for putting top developer in quotes... I have no doubt that you are indeed a "top developer".
