This sounds like a "Negative Brag" to me.

You are SOOOO MUCH SMARTER than the other guys you work with (please read sarcasm into this statement).

Working as a successful employee includes more than being good at your particular skill, which I am certain that you are. No sarcasm intended.

Working as a successful employee, please include contract labor, independent contractor, etc. in this category, involves much more. It includes being a team player, communicating well with others, following requests from your superiors willingly and cheerfully, and yes, that last means "doing it their way".

What good is writing code using the "latest and greatest", "Most Robust" tools, frameworks and techniques, that no one else can understand, when in our industry as you well know most of those things will have the life span of Mayflies? Where will the company employing you be when you have moved on to your next contract, or job, and they are left with code you developed, that few programmers / developers understand?

They aren't paying you to be a great programmer, they are paying you do get the job done the way they want it done.
"Newer" is NOT automatically better, only Different. (And more complex and bug ridden when it comes to all of the "boutique" languages / frameworks out there)

It's a random chance Universe and we are all out there surfing waves of probability...
