Choose boring employees

An idea I’ve heard from many directions recently is that “we” (whoever they are) “need to be on the latest tech stack in order to attract developers”. And yes, you do attract developers that way. Developers who want to be paid to work on the latest technology.

Next year, your company will be a year more mature. Your product will be a year more developed. You will have a year more customers. You’ll have a year more tech debt to pay off.

And your cutting-edge tech stack will be so last year. Your employees will be looking at the new startup in the office next door, and how they’re hiring to work on the latest stack while you’re still on your 2017 legacy technology.
