Good read.
 
New blog post: XKCD, incident pits, and how not to outsmart yourself.
The British have a phrase "Too clever by half", It needs to go global, especially among hackers. In can have any of several closely related meanings: the one I mean to focus on here has to do with ...

This is pretty darn cool.
Cloaking paint developed by Michigan Engineers goes on clear and dries invisible. Once applied, it guides light around an object, causing it to become transparent.

If this is the state of our craft, something is very wrong.
 
Second, even if the package’s logic is correct, I can’t help but be amazed by the fact that developers are taking on dependencies for single line functions that they should be able to write with their eyes closed. In my opinion, if you cannot write a left-pad, is-positive-integer, or isArray function in 5 minutes flat (including the time you spend Googling), then you don’t actually know how to code. Hell, any of these would make a great code screening interview question to determine whether or not a candidate can code.

Finally, stringing APIs together and calling it programming doesn’t make it programming. It’s some crazy form of dependency hacking that involves the cloud, over-engineering things, and complexity far beyond what’s actually needed.
Okay developers, time to have a serious talk. As you are probably already aware, this week React, Babel, and a bunch of other high-profile packages on NPM broke. The reason they broke is rather astounding. A simple NPM package called left-pad that was a dependency of React, Babel, ...
