One could argue we should consider the good-enough-to-get-a-job skills to be the “baseline.” But there are a whole lot of front-end jobs to choose from, and getting one doesn’t establish much of a baseline. For me, I don’t want to get a job; I want to get invited to great jobs. I don’t want to go to work; I want to go to work with talented people. And I don’t want to be satisfied with knowing enough to do the work that needed to be done yesterday; I want to know how to do the work that will need to get done tomorrow.
