So here comes the most important question, are you using the right foundation? Do you know what it is doing for you? What are you sacrificing and what are you getting by using it?
Open Your Eyes:
The world of web is subject to change and it changes very fast. Smart devices, computers, and browsers are improving all the time. Every week, we see the launch of a new framework, CSS selector, and task runner. Every web designing firm is trying to find the right way of writing codes, and suggesting new structures or paradigms to do so.
Whenever we look at a greatest and largest framework to the next, it seems like we are just shuffling with pieces of the same puzzle. We are not moving forward but trying to solve the same problem.
But before we choose a new web development language it is important for us to trust ourselves over praising the codes written by others. Every framework that has been built in the history of the web must have a goal. But at a certain level, these goals may or may not match with the requirement of your project. It is a developer’s job to find out the disadvantages of a language. However, when it comes to framework there is no such thing as perfect as them. After all, it is the developer who will apply the strategies and concepts on the framework.
No matter how the style or the structure of the framework looks, it is you who will organize the code, and make it readable. Any framework in this world cannot do it for you.
Choosing the Right Technology:
Have you ever given it a thought why you are choosing a specific framework, language or technology before starting a new project? Is it because you are fluent in that particular language?
