The myth of the Senior Developer

I have been thinking lately about what Senior Developers (Senior Engineers, Software Architects, etc.) contribute to an organization.

There is a long list of attributes a senior developer can have, two of them are—

  • Performance and output—much better than junior developers
  • Level of creativity—constantly trying out new things

I want to examine this dogma, and perhaps shine a light of self-criticism on it.
