re: Learning Frameworks and APIs vs Software design principles VIEW POST

re: I think a big part of this question is motivation. I'm often more motivated by the tangible wins, the stuff that comes with frameworks and APIs us...

There's a learning style component as well. I've known people who want to read the manual before they use a new thing - which I see as analogous to principles thinking. Some folks prefer to jump in - frameworks.

You can get a lot done without understanding why it works in a framework, and you can understand a lot of theory without ever writing code that does something interesting. The trick, as usual, is to find a balance.
