Expensify CEO On ‘Why We Won’t Hire .NET Developers’

TheGrapeApe writes “The CEO of San Francisco-based, VC-backed startup Expensify wrote a post on the company’s blog about why he considers .NET experience on a resume a general liability, saying that it will ‘definitely raise questions’ when screening for developers in his shop. Quoting: ‘.NET is a dandy language. It’s modern, it’s fancy, it’s got all the bells and whistles. And if you’re doing Windows Mobile 7 apps (which the stats suggest you aren’t), it’s your only choice. But choosing .NET is a choice, and whenever anybody does it, I can’t help but ask “why?”‘ Does he have a point? Or is it counterproductive to screen devs out based on what platforms or languages they have used in the past?”
