Video Recording and Production by Backflip Films

When a web development or software project is defined, we face a seemingly endless number of choices – from frameworks, to module loading, to dependency management, to code style. There are at least 2 tools for every job, and a group of people willing to argue the merits of each one until they are blue in the face. Fanaticism runs rampant, and we’ve started to ask the wrong questions when faced with new tools and ways of solving problems. This talk examines the decisions we as developers make, the way we make them, and how we can make these decisions better. We’ll talk about framework fanaticism, dealing with large teams, and protecting yourself once you’ve made your choices. This talk mostly features examples from javascript, but can be applied to many different tech stacks.
