KISS used to be my favorite = Keep it simple & stupid. Now, I prefer the boring.

This is such a great reminder, Addy. Our job is indeed to deliver value and not build a fancy tech.

This 💯.

I love using new tech and tools maybe even more than the average dev. ✨

But if it’s not connected to something that gives huge value to our users and requires a steep learning / maintenance / refactoring curve - we should steer clear.

Deliver value. Find the best thing that does that in the simplest way possible, and use that thing as much as possible. 🚀

Sometimes that’s a new thing, and sometimes that just a good oldie.

Thanks for the reminder, Addy!

Agreed! But please don't confuse “boring architecture” with “no architecture” 😅🙏
