The software industry has engendered a culture of distracted programmers using bad tools to solve problems they don’t have time to fully understand. In this essay, I try to explore why. https://medium.com/@smarimc/when-programming-became-a-chore-a0be2b9919c0
@ratamacue ahh! I see. I'm not actually complaining about calling things good intent-revealing names, note. I'm more complaining about the line of thinking that leads people to doing it in that particular way.
@smari Agreed. I work in a PCI-DSS certified company, and it's nice how much scrutiny we give to even simple additions to our external dependencies. That dependency would never fly in package.json. Although a package with common math operations inside the project, including a function to check if something is odd probably would fly.
@ratamacue yes. That also breaks out of the thing I'm pointing to about including the logic rather than the interface. I guess I'm saying I prefer assimilate to graft. Borg > Vidiians.
