Did you know that we have never found a relationship between a developer's years of experience and code quality or productivity? We have measured this at least 8 times over 30 years and the results have not changed!

Great post!!!!! We need more management and developers alike who are aware of these studies but sadly many people figure that people ALWAYS correct and learn from mistakes over time but in reality a lot of people can't or they just don't know how. The most important attributes which really aren't related to years of experience are technical aptitude, mistake recognition and self-correction when it comes to becoming a good developer.
