I find it very strange and telling when people tell me that a dev shouldn't "re-invent the wheel", "roll your own" or "leave it to the experts" while simultaneously promoting substandard own-rolled projects by other people that simply got popular.
Kind of a strange elitist double standard that encourages a bad mindset of "I can't be as good as them" and it's toxic.
If you wanna make your own framework / package / etc, just do it, it might even be better.6
I find it so ironic that people love to rag on those who copy code from StackOverflow when most of these same people use tools like composer or npm.
At least you can vet code snippets.4
As a now obsolete practice in the age of widescreen monitors and resolutions many times greater, do you still enforce line lengths in your code?
If so, what length do you use and why?10
So at one point I worked for an online clothes store and their frontend developers were treated like the sun shined from their backsides, never a problem.
But the backend staff were treated like consumables, their PHP developer turnaround was insane, they'd come up bizarre reasons to let people go including one person who was fired because he argued with a director because how the director wanted their new feature to be programmed was simply broken.
Has anyone seen anything else like this?4
