Everything happens for a reason.
Sometimes that reason is you’re stupid and make bad choices.
A few months ago I attended Node Summit in San Francisco, dedicated to success stories around node.js implementations in large architectures. There were a couple of very educational war stories (particularly, the so-called, “boring” Walmart Black Friday case study, presented by Eran Hammer), but, this rant is not going to be about how awesome node.js is. This rant is going to be about bad decisions. Those that are still being made in the world of technology, driven by false premises, wrong reasons and buzzword bingo.
