Re: @tiggity re. all those JS coders
Hmm, I've been coding for over 35 years, still enjoy it, now earn in the top 10% (countrywide) working for the third biggest computer company (by sales) worldwide on really interesting stuff.
So being a dev isn't all bad. You just need to be good at it and find a decent job!
We have interns in who are VERY bright, even at age 18 they are well worth paying well. They could walk in to a job here no problem - and have. Helps being in Cambridge I suppose, with a good catchment.
