re: What’s an unpopular software opinion you have? VIEW POST

  1. I gave a talk about Visual Studio Code in my company yesterday. Among my colleagues I am the only one who uses VSCode and I think there is no reason for web developers to use WebStorm.

  2. I don't think it makes sense to host your own database when you can use cloud solutions.

  3. Don't get me wrong, I really like Docker and Kubernetes, but I think for some projects it is okay to deploy them on bare metal.


1 - Totally agree.

2 - Price, I can have a couple of powerful dedicated servers for 150€ per month and make a solid database setup with replication and backups in there that can handle thousands of connections per minute while the same on AWS would cost me around 900€ per month.

3 - Again cost. The recovery time on a crash and the ability to quickly move(a couple of minutes) everything to another machine are priceless.

Better code completion, search and code navigation are worth it.
