Approachable Tooling

Submitted by sonniesedge on Tue, 08/06/2019 - 08:53

It’s fantastic that our web plumbing has gotten more powerful—tooling today is capable of so much. But all too often, that power comes with increased complexity that negatively impacts developer efficiency.

This the thing. We've overshot our comfortable complexity levels. We need to recognise this and pull ourselves in a bit.

Like excellent plumbing, these systems should be as mostly invisible—chugging along, doing what we need them to do without getting in our way.

There are developers who are quietly building their sites and apps, day in, day out. But they are rendered invisible as they are not making use of the cutting-edge technologies that the bleeding edge folk love to talk about.
