But that's a good question. How much time should be invested.
I have to work with awful shop systems on a php basis, but because of the time investment I have sometimes it makes me feel like they are okay.
But they are really not. Too little time investment and I don't understand the pitfalls. Too much and I don't see them anymore. How do I ever decide anything?
Inxentas31922dThe other way around is also true. Time constraints are usually money constraints or some other business reason. What if suits want you to make a decision in 8 hours? Not adopting new tech is a logical consequence of such a constraint.
ChaoticGoods16722d@Inxentas fortunately the company I'm at never expects a decision on a new technology to be made in a single day. Technical details are left up to us. But I could see how some environments might justify it. Except the rest of the team, some of which have more experience, where pushing for code first.
Inxentas31921dI'm in the same boat, being the only programmer on the team these days. I always disliked having my frameworks being picked based on the need for such a paradigm, which is quite common in big companies these days.
