Thoughts, opinions and day-to-day ramblings
As a developer these days it's important to move with the times. In our day jobs here at DP towers, we uses all sorts of different technologies and aim to find the best fit for our clients projects - some use "traditional" server based languages like PHP (both with and without it's associated frameworks like Laravel, CodeIgniter and friends). We build and integrate with REST APIs, GraphQL, MariaDB, MongoDB and whatever "the next big thing" ends up turning out to be.
However, I can't help but feel a little like our industry is hell bent on using "the next big thing" without and real consideration of it's suitability for a solving a particular problem. I think this applies, in spades, within the front end development space.
