Discussion on: Don't believe the hype.

That's completely fine Adrian, that's the joy of discussion! Tech has come on leaps and bounds, and I most certainly advocate for the use of new tech in development projects. I don't think that you constantly need to change your application to use them though. The problem you are trying to solve is more important than how you solve it. But yes, things would be a little dull if we were still programming in COBOL. 😉

I wholeheartedly agree! There's a tendency to be hell-bent on using new technology since it's "the next big thing". A thorough understanding of what's already being offered is necessary. More often than not, the new technology is overkill of what you are trying to accomplish.

Cheers, Chris!
