Programming frameworks have become more widely used recently. As with anything popular, there was an inevitable backlash. Now, as we sit in the midst of a holy war, you’re probably wondering which side to choose. Hopefully Webmonkey can help.
Now that you know what frameworks are, read below and choose a side in the great debate!
1. You are an anti-framework zealot
Summary: Frameworks make code fat and lazy.
2. You are an unapologetic framework supporter
You believe frameworks are there to make your life easy. You don’t want to learn the language, you want to make stuff work. Writing your own code takes too much time. Frameworks have done all the hard stuff—why not use one?
Summary: Frameworks make programming easy.
3. You are Switzerland—totally neutral
Why can’t we all just get along? This debate makes no sense to you because you don’t care how someone else codes. If someone wants to use a framework, let them. If someone wants to start from scratch, that’s okay, too.
Summary: Frameworks are fine, but you don’t need to use one.
Which one are you? Once you decide, go and vote your favorite up or down.
