Thanks Jerod, I enjoyed the discussion. I think the big takeaway for me is "learning inertia", which is not worrying about the most optimal implementation but instead doing something rewarding that will motivate you to continue. Staying engaged will give valuable experience and hopefully motivate you to go a level lower and understand how things work. We as developers often fixate or debate on how best to solve a problem that we don't end up building anything.
💯% that's why I believe pragmatism (which focuses on progress over perfection) is the best overriding philosophy for developers to adopt. Get going, work with the tools you have today, make smart compromises, don't get stuck trying to do the perfect thing when the good thing is good enough.
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.
