|A little about me: I am web-developer with almost 10 years of experience. I've spent lots of time in my life learning about design patterns, frameworks, and going through hundreds of programming blogs. I work mostly with quite big business apps (crm's, intranets) but also big frontend websites.|
Even small website often requires hundreds of megabytes of dependencies. Sometimes one application can have 2 different build systems e.g. (ant, grunt) and few dependency managers...
Micro/nano services trend looks optimistic, but I am not sure if it's not double-edged sword, and instead of using complex frameworks developer will be forced to use complex communication system to orchestrate communication between them.
In few years instead of writing code are we going to write configs files?
