We are all aware that 'senior' has different value and meaning from company to company, lets try to lay some foundation: ideas, concepts, terms & expectations that are generally expected.

Idea behind this panel is to have a whole harted discussion and ask from panelists to share their lessons, stories, experiences & opinions. We are open to questions and comments, all you have to do is raise your hand and wait for microphone!

Panel will be moderated by Miro Svrtan, and panelists are: Juliette Reinders Folmer, Rafael Dohms and Milan Popovic.

Great thing PHP Serbia returned panel talks. Raphael dominated the panel

I'm not a fan of too controversial topics for panel talks and seniority is definitely one of these. As expected, there was no agreement about what seniority means. Speakers did well though.

I'm not usually a fan of panels but this was really interesting.

It was interesting, however a bit too abstract, the speakers did not give any concrete ideas and advice to people walking down this road but rather stuck with the idea that seniority is relative and cannot be generalized. It was interesting to listen to but not particularly useful.

@Alexander: Idea was not to define what `senior` is as much as share knowledge and lessons with attendees on how to become 'senior', what to look out, etc.

When speaking to younger generations, due to high misuse of 'senior' term, I often get asked what it is, how they can achive it, what to do and how to get there. Sorry if that wasn't clear from the abstract and the topics we tried to cover, will work on that for hopefully next iterations of this panel.

@Misa: Hm, sorry to hear that as I really tought we covered those very well. Will wait for videos to look at the whole panel and will try to improve the idea if I decide to repeat something similar.
