On opinionation

I’ve realised that when I read that a tool or framework is “opinionated”, I interpret that as meaning that I’m going to have to spend time on working out how to express my solution in its terms. I have enough trouble trying to work out how to express my solution in terms of my problem, so I’m probably going to avoid that tool or framework.

  1. This is something which I’m noticing a lot myself. I also think it’s stopping you from learning new skills and techniques by just accepting what they’ve chosen for you – sod that, roll your own. Keep things simple, not easy.
