Stick To Tinkering
- Walid Ziouche
tl;dr: "I’m witnessing a generation proficient with NextJS, but not much interaction with Node, the runtime, or, the system in our case. I’ve seen some devs unable to start a project without a ready-made boilerplate, generator or template... Web developers lacking a good understating around HTTP verbs, statelessness, status codes, routing and url parts, .. the behind the scene mechanics of the web." Walid discusses the implications of this and the remedy - learning by tinkering with lower level systems.
