Although Randall Koutnik wears a funny hat, he is very serious about the current broken methods for measuring a developer’s career progression. He suggests that instead of judging a career via vague metrics like time, we’ll focus on a path centered around autonomy and also walks us through his recommendation for three stages of a developer’s life: The Implementer, who’s just learning the ropes and needs careful attention. The Solver, who tackles ever-bigger problems - and needs the responsibility to match. Finally, the Finder, who will revolutionise how you do work but only if you let them.
