Great article.

I think one important aspect of a -true- Senior Developer is their ability to choose the correct tool/framework/library for the task to be done. And this knowledge usually comes from previous projects their worked on, so experience is important.

There are a lot of awesome tools, but the true is that nothing works for every case. Knowing what to choose is something that adds a lot of value and prevents spending unnecessary time.
