you shouldn’t care about the language they’ve used in the past


bullsh*t. Languages have quirks. Languages breed cultures. Same with things like Agile and database and IDE and such. A hard-core developer from another tribe might have trouble fitting into your tribe. Yes, a developer may be able to acclimate easily, but the odds favour bringing in someone who is already familiar with your tools.

Is your new hire going to sit around grumbling about how awful your tools are and how much better their last job was?

I will also say that overall years of experience help a lot to alleviate such problems.
