Blaine's post summarizes an article by The Atlantic, "The Coming Software Apocalypse" and analyzes Uncle Bob's response, Tools Are Not The Answer.

2. Are you hamster wheeling?

Suzan talks about the plateau every developer faces in their career: continue solving the same problems or move to management/entrepreneurship/open source, with all the outcomes leading to burnout. In this post, we long for the missing career path for programmers.

A fun AMA with Sean, where we learned about why react is better than vue and what his favorite chicken breeds are.
