And another interesting article from Christian Heilmann, on the current bad status of the Web Development work field, where most experienced developers are exhausted, tired to fight against a philosophy of “shipping fast, deliver now, quality later”, and also…because of tech privilege!
No, I am not against innovating and I’d be the last to pretend that the web stack is perfect. But I am also tired of seeing talented developers being burned out. We have a 1–2 year average retention span of developers in companies. This is not sustainable. This is not how we can have a career. This is not how we can become more diverse. The ugly brogrammer is only in part our own biases and faults. It is a result of an unhealthy work environment based on “release fast and break things”. We broke a lot. Let’s try to fix it by fixing what people use, not telling them what they should be using.
