Is software developer fatigue a thing?
rhymes May 11
Do we have too many programming languages? Sometimes I find myself thinking about the fact that we (as the developers on planet Earth) spend so much time writing "a date/time library" in a gazillion of languages because every new language or framework obviously needs one. I'm not arguing merits here, every language is either amazing or useful to someone but they all need the same building blocks. Will we ever find a "one true language" for each domain (I know, my reasoning is fallible) and stop rewriting functions to split a string into an array each and every time?
Are there too many technologies on the cloud? I am not advocating monopoly obviously but every time I open the AWS console (I hope I'm not the only one) I find this dashboard a bit ridicoulous:
I honestly don't know what half of those entries do.
The Google Cloud offer is also super long:
I guess the same goes for Azure.
How much cloud tech are we supposed to be familiar with?
So, am I the only one that thinks of "software developer fatigue"?
