    This isn’t actually a satire but it’s the best tag for why I’m sharing it, because man oh man is this article so bad it’s good. Here’s just a sample:

    This role covers a multitude of coding languages. At the front-end, a Full Stack Java developer uses HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. At the back-end, they will use PHP and Python.

    And that’s just the second paragraph! I love this article so much.

      After scanning the article without having noticed the submitter or the tags, I hit back to flag it as spam. I’ve never been so happy to be wrong. This is an MST3K-worthy lobste.rs post. That might even be a good tag to request, come to think of it…

        honestly wondering if article this is some GPT-esque AI generated SEO nonsense 🤔

          The posting referenced no longer exists. Maybe it was satire?

          Edit: Someone suggested it could be SEO bait.

            Still exists for me, and probably works for SEO, but exposing your complete ignorance of the fields that you purport to specialize in seems more like anti-advertising than promotion, no matter how many keywords you throw in.

              Totally SEO bait, but SEO bait that stumbled into magnificence

              I don’t want to pile on this poor recruiter (assuming they even see this) but yes this is solid gold. I didn’t understand the mechanics until I saw the real rate card of recruiters. Money. :)

                This piece was beautiful. I came here to rant about people who think working at the very top levels of abstraction makes them a ‘full-stack’ developer, but the article just sums up my complaints so perfectly.

                What the heck haha, I kept scanning for him to mention when I’d need to learn Java! Does he think JavaScript = Java??
