I came to Ruby and Rails (for a job) in 2018 and I couldn’t disagree more. The comments above about productivity are spot on.
To use your analogy, even if some store isn’t the best place to get any one given thing, it can still be the best place to go when you need 15 different things (particularly if you don’t quite know what they are yet)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
