Move at a Reasonable Speed & Balance Things
We know that the rapid pace of technology makes a challenging task for its creators and practitioners to keep up with its perpetual innovations. Those of us who inhabit the nebulous front-end design/development world, with its constantly changing tools and complexity, know this truth twice over. All of which suggests that it’s worthwhile to pause from time to time to think about how we think about it all. Let’s consider how the speed of technology affects our product quality, our continuing education and our community connection, and whether or not the philosophies we often use to navigate this world are likely lead us to the result we really want.
