Golang scope issue

When you work long enough with languages like PHP or JavaScript, you get used to their very unusual behaviors. These are languages that are interpreted just in time.

Why can't I get hired?

Companies are struggling to find developers. It's one of these things you are not sure if people are saying this to brag or they are genuinely having a problem. I ask because on the other side, developers are also having a hard time getting hired. Junior developers say no one wants to hire juniors because all jobs require many years of experience.

Everyone and their grandma will be able to drag and drop a few functions with fun emoticons to create fully functional applications. This is not the future, it is happening right now. But the underlying technology will become so big and complex that no one person will understand the whole of it.
