You might be curious to see how much CSS each library inserts into the document while running the "dynamic styles" test. In some cases it can be >3 MB! Run tests and then use this script to log the CSS in a given library's style sheet

Screenshot? And I wouldn't guess as what will be faster

Most are not even close to a single order of magnitude slower

I think slow-moving companies are less likely to have issues with laziness than with inconsistent company mission, senior leadership cohesion, misalignment between teams, ineffective work practices, risk aversion, alienation from users, etc.

I wasn't blaming anyone or implying it's simply an issue of "soft skills". It's also ethics, politics, sociology, ecology, economics …depends exactly on what business you're in. For PMs at social networks it can be everything from anthropology to coaching to machine learning

Pretty good overall. Took one person, Zero, a couple of days to build a native DM app largely from Twitter Lite code. These days most of the components wouldn't need porting to StyleSheet either

We did this during hack week at Twitter over a year ago, using Twitter Lite's code /cc

Anyone who believes good things happen to good people who work hard has obviously never played Mario Kart

Absolutely. I don't even work at Facebook but is one of my favorite managers 😂. However, I was neither accounting specifically for Facebook nor generalizing about just engineering management. Reflection more about tech management being hard, nebulous, misunderstood.

It's baffling that software orgs think engineer ICs are those most in need of training. It's managers that have *by far* the largest gap between initial and required skills/knowledge for their job. Most don't even know what they need to learn. It's catastrophic for the industry

Finally, know that 99% of the code you see written by others is "polished end result", whereas 99% of the code you see from yourself is "in progress garbage". But everyone is in the same boat, so be kind to yourself along the way.
