Interesting rant. I can't say I yearn for the bubblegum and duct-tape days of yore. But I agree with the sentiment that our current technologies have heavily over-complicated the landscape. Elm and Reason mentions are a bit misplaced. I found it much simpler to make apps with the likes of these than with component-based frameworks, no fancy math involved.
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.
