    They are indeed hand coded!

    Yup, entirely in-house. Watched them work on it for months.

    I've done it, specifically from the UK. It took me roughly 3 years to successfully immigrate and I tried a variety of ways. One lawyer even told me I didn't stand a chance of getting one.

    I have Standard Grades from the Scottish high school system and nothing more. I left school at 16 and never went to college or university. This is the bit that tripped me up during the process. Not having a degree of some sort seems to be the easiest way for them to ignore your application.

    I ended up getting the L1 visa, which is where you work for a company from their UK office for 12 months then they can apply for a visa for you in order to move you to their US office.

    Even then, that's not what I did. The company I work for purchased the IP to a product I had been working on for about 3 years at that point. They then claimed that because I had 3 years of work in a product they owned that I've technically worked for them for the required period of time. Then tadaaaaaa, I was given a visa. The process which was forever stopping at the first step over 3 years was pretty much done in a month or two due to that little loophole.

    Essentially: It sucks, lawyers are expensive, and you better be sure you like the US before you make the move.

    The article you're referring to has a comments section, the "article" you've written is a comment. I feel like this is just pandering for views and rivalry.
