The internet would have you believe differently. The level of complexity in building products these days is baffling.
What once was an HTML page with a simple database has been replaced with statically served SPAs stored on S3.
What used to be a PHP script that saved data to a SQL database has been replaced with serverless lambda functions spun up with AWS Amplify.
It would seem that a software developer starting today would need a full blown certificate in AWS or Azure to build a todo list.
And when you have built something, the gate keepers of the programming world will tell you there is a “better” way to build it.
And I’m tired of gatekeeping.
I believe that products should be built to serve a purpose before all else, and I believe that ANYONE can learn to build those products if they just get started and ignore all of the naysayers.
I want to help those just getting started. I want to help creators CREATE without worrying about the complexity. Let’s help each other along towards building great products that serve a purpose, and let’s start by tearing down the gates preventing people from building.
