As developers, a fundamental part of our job is constantly assessing new and better tools. We have ones that we’ve used for years, and we’re not going to give those up. But we also have to reassess which additional tools or technologies we need to use for each new project. There might be libraries, frameworks or even new languages that are better suited for what we (as individuals or part of a team) are trying to build.
This “quick assessment ability” is a core skill for every developer.
