What a great post! So much in here resonates with me. I too am much more discerning with my efforts, and NewSpeak makes me come out in spots.

I've had younger developers explaining event-sourcing to me like it was so damn innovative, ignorant of the fact that I was doing transaction-log db recoveries when they were breastfeeding. Or being gung-ho about about meeting that totally artificial deadline imposed by some manager. Or rolling their eyes when I suggest we use a good ol' relational DB instead of the latest real-time, iot hotness. Hey-ho.

Ooooh, I love that relational DB example! I've heard some people talk about relational DBs like they're a deprecated symbol of a bygone era.
