In many cases or better yet "on many projects" 1. is "You're developing system for people to make their lives easier not to look smart". I've seen that learning all those patterns, FP principals, theoretical physics and math is mainly to talk about it and look smarts. Computers were made to automate stuff not to gather limited number of IT people so they brag about who knows more. You can really feel this importance when you work in non software company. Yeah non-software companies still higher people to develop some of their own ideas and then all your talks about "immutable" or "builder pattern" go through out the window and the only important thing left is can you deliver something when users "clicks button".
