Too fast.

And it's not a good thing.

While we start to think that we get a hang of something, there is new thing coming out.

Result is nobody knowing anything well, nothing is developed properly.

Hardwares, languages, frameworks, methodologies. Everything is going too fast.

Or may be I'm just a slow sloth.

    devRant is developed properly. and linux. i’d consider you to be more of a tortoise when comparing animals to your speed, but that’s just me.

    @calmyourtities dfox admit he didn't do any unit testing though πŸ˜›

    Unit testing is a myth, theres no evidence it even exists outside of textbooks

    [insert mandatory js framework joke]

    some parts of it move too fast (particularly the high-level), some too slow. For example, we just don't get rid of infrastructure twice as old as i am.

    Yes, i watched Gary Bernhard yesterday.

    @git-gud I think using old ass stuff is also one big side effects of evolving too fast.

    You don't want to change to current and new ones? Bye bye, live with your not fully evolved things.

    Instead of improving the ones we have to perfection, it's easier to create something new. 🀷‍♂️

    Something like that I guess. Hope you got what I mean.

    My brain is in a bit jelly stage.

    "too fast" seems to depend on the industry.

    A customer wants annotations to their PDF/A files delivered as FDF. Great. Adobe substituted that with XFDF in 2007.
    Access to the same customers servers is done using the Cisco VPN client... Discontinued in 2011...

    With the front-end, I completely agree. It's a 6-steps forward, 5-steps back mentality. A readiness to throw away something good for a sideways move. What's more, I always say it's better to be great at an OK tool than to be OK at a great tool. What's safer: an expert uber driver behind a prius, or a 16-year-old in a supercar? I'm far from luddite--but I'm an advocate for picking "better-things-when-they're-*actually*-better". 5% better is generally not worth throwing out the mature tool. 50% is worth the conversation. Neither is prudent *at all* without a real good think.

    @cursee I see what you mean. During the last 12 months, I have worked with these storage solutions:
    - Postgres
    - DynamoDB
    - Elasticsearch
    - Mongo
    - OracleDB
    - mysql
    - Redis
    - Cassandra
    - S3
    This is getting crazy. In the morning I learn a technology, in the evening I am supposed to design data model and write object mapping.

    @matste most of them are almost the same.
    And this technologies are not really new.

    Have you checked out cockroachDB?

    Technology is not moving too fast, it is branching out fast, from principles we don't learn anymore.

    That is why you feel no one knows what is going on.

    We are taught stuff without the principles.

    For instance, I do not know any dev know what us below docker, most people think that docker and container is the same thing.
