Fully agree. Extremely interesting in this context too: .

That's why I am way more careful both talking about "hot new technologies" and similar conferences. In those cases, maybe not really understanding a solution due to lack of understanding for the problem is the "best" case. The worst case might be turning towards "hot" technologies just because they are available, spending loads of time and energy building on top of it to just, halfway through this, figure out they do solve a completely different problem and thus are anything but helpful for what you initially need to do. That's why these days, given a few years of right these experiences, I tend to be very cautious about pushing technological solutions and rather propose to start small, start productive and try to focus on just solving problems at hand to see what next step needs to be made. ;)
