There will always be a tool(s) that excel at a certain job, and part of the nature of web development is that the best tools are somewhat situational/a moving target. I think you raise good questions, but I think we as devs have to make sure we dont get overwhelmed by the myriad of options, full stop. At least, that's the impression I get from your post.
You're absolutely right, Michael! It was a moment of despair and being overwhelmed, but we have to move on with our work as developers, choosing the best tools, as you said... However, I feel like the discussion on the future of the web is still quite relevante, because we often get trapped in our short-term challenges and leave the future planning for "industry experts".
I'm thinking if there isn't any sort of middle ground here 🤔
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.
