Believe it or not, my first job after university was as a web designer, working on websites for the department of labor of the Catalan government. Since then, I’ve been a web developer, working for a couple of companies, plus some time as a freelance. Through this years, my profile has become way more technical, as web development has evolved on that direction. Now everything is more ‘serious’.
The thing is, once I got into it and just having explored the surface, I find difficult to understand why to use Ember on a project. Yes, it’s really cool. Yeah, I know it has lots of features. And yes, the people behind it is way (WAY) smarter than me. I’m not saying is not good, but I think we have lost perspective on web development. Using Ember on an average website to do a couple of things is unnecessary.I’m not saying these libraries are not good. They have amazing features and for complex tasks, they can be very useful. But using one of these on a simple web/e-commerce site doesn’t make sense on 90% of the cases. Is like buying a Ferrari to go around your neighborhood at 40 km/h. You may think you look cool, but is a stupid thing to do.
