A part of a machine, not the machine

30 January 2014

In most projects you’re part of a team. It often consists of desginers, frontend developers, backend engineers, operations and other team players. Whenever you want a no tool, a new technology introduced, becareful not to forget you’re part of a team. While a new tool may have benefits to you, it can often also introduce disadvantages and complexity for other players on the team.

When you want a new tool or technology introduced - suggest it and ask for feedback from the rest of the team. If they have none - fine go a had, but if it causes issues for them, you provide input on what could be done to address this.
