Companies, take a chance on junior devs. Their fresh perspective and eagerness to learn will do wonders for business.

So true! It's really fun when people show up and ask a lot of questions, and it turns out that the way you've been doing stuff for a while can be improved just by taking a fresh look!

Over the last year or so I've written my first book, An Elegant Puzzle, which is my attempt to share what I've learned about engineering management.

I think your statement is intuitively right in today's world primarily because (1) text-based programming with JS and Python is really hard to learn and (2) visual programming isn't as widespread. But I hope to help build a future where your statement is no longer true.

That's a great question! I actually don't know. I wish I could have the answer to that.

I see the difference between visual programming and text-based programming as similar to the difference between two programming languages or two IDEs. Some of them are quite different and yet we recognize that they are the same fundamental activity.

I think perhaps something that Vlad and I would agree on is that there are indeed differences, but nomenclature _does_ matter, and the differences might not be "meaningful" depending on your definition of meaningful.

Personally I don't think it's silly at all. Visual development tools are not yet as capable as text-based development tools, but in my opinion that's just because they haven't had as much time to progress. What's the meaningful difference you are trying to represent?

Here's a proposal for definition of "programming": > Composing a set of instructions (a program) to be executed by a computer.

Whoa hold up I disagree that visual development is not "programming" or "coding". That's like saying a written language that doesn't use letters isn't a written language. Perhaps "text-based programming" or "text-based development"?

There is indeed some GraphQL in production in the Stripe Dashboard! You can read our first article about the work we're doing here:

Super exciting to see Nike engineering using GraphQL and Apollo and getting all of these benefits!

That would do as well as anything as a definition of adulthood: when you stop getting credit for effort.

Am generally pretty optimistic about Stripe. Part of the job, honestly. But, man, if we ship even half of what‘s planned for 2019, the year is going to be a true lollapalooza.

Yeah if it doesn't have arguments - you might need a ( as well

Sounds like a very useful idea! I don't know of anything that exists for it yet.

I feel like the React/Apollo/Serverless space could get there with time but still some work to be done for sure.
