From Ryan Florence’s 2015 talk about how to gradually migrate from the old crappy tech to what was then the new hotness of the day, React:

Tech matters to us. The products matter to a lot of developers, but I’ve learned that there are a lot of us out there that really do not care what we are building; what we care about is the tech that we get to use.
(Cheers, applause)




I remember talking to a senior colleague from a previous job. What factors about a company do you consider when looking for a new job, I asked. The product, he answered. Doesn’t the tech stack matter to you, I asked. No, he said, that’s irrelevant.

I was nonplussed. I didn’t care much about the product we were developing. Granted, it was infinitely better than what I had to work on at my first job, but what I was really interested in was to get experience with the technology that the company used.

I don’t know if I’ve grown up any since then.
