Discussion on: Dream team != (is not equal to) success

I would say try always to use the framework if it provides the same feature.

The framework might have a community of many developers, each one bulletproofing it with different use cases.

Try to diminish the amount of custom code of your company.

Hey Yucer! Yeah, this is very opinionated and different companies should know what's best for them depending on the project / product. Sometimes custom code is the best way to go (as long as you know what you're doing). Frameworks are very powerful and it's great that they exist, but you need to know when it's the right time to use them or not. I say this mainly for the sake of large code that comes pre-loaded with some frameworks and libraries. But if you choose to start using them from the very beginning, than it's completely fine.
