Software is about people, not code - A reminder of what’s important when it comes to software. Hint, it’s not the software itself.
Most people don’t know or care about the code. (If they did, they’d likely be a developer.) They’re just trying to get something done. The most beautiful, well tested, flexible, configurable, documented, future proofed codebase that does the wrong thing is useless.
Monoliths are the future - I have to admit, I’m a huge fan of monolith code bases, but there are times when a microservice makes sense. It’s not as often as people think though.
So a lot of people get addicted to all the flourishment of money, and marketing, and it’s just a lot of buzz that people are attaching their assignment to, when honestly it’s not gonna necessarily solve their problem.
