With all the talk about echo chambers and self-censorship I wonder if a similar predicament affects developers.
When making a technical decision do find yourself thinking "Is this the right way to do that" or, "What will people say"?
Even worse did you ever give up on an idea only because it just seemed wrong? Too weird to work?
But how often does it really matter in the context of your product or project?
Would you be more productive if you just did whatever you felt like doing and focused on the product instead?
