My question is why do you guys keep asking the same question? Do you really believe experienced developers that are around today were born with the experience? Unless I missed something experience doesn't make you immortal. We all have an expiration date and we owe it to ourselves to prepare the next batch. In my opinion only senior programmers that have lost their edge and willingness to learn are intimidated by younger inexperience programmers. Information Technology is for people who enjoy learning and are motivated to advance their skills all the time. Hire inexperience programmers who have willingness to learn, give them your programming standards, teach them about good programming practices and provide them with constructive criticism. It will eventually pay off.
