Re: Pending Review
You're touching on a very important issue when you point out that Ruby has all but collapsed, but it's a far wider field, because dev-tool-of-the-month club is alive and well!
I ran into an acquaintance the other day, a very experienced former IBM manager, who told me about his new job at a startup. "And all the coding is right up to date. We're doing everything in React and Node."
I couldn't help myself, and said, "right- do you know what any of that means?"
He smiled sheepishly and said, "no, not really."
Maybe React and Node have staying power. But I constantly see people taking what I see as stupendous risks- betting the company- on technologies that were invented two years ago.
And completely and blithely unaware fo the risk.
