I'm not a programmer, but was having a debate with someone who said they felt like male coders should wear a tie, possibly even a suit, for job interviews.
His argument was, even if it's an interview with a startup, people who are dressed professionally are taken more seriously.
My argument was, I may have less faith in their coding ability the better they dress.
Not that I think they should look sloppy, but they should look the part.
What's your thoughts?
