"I type code online directly in the pagoda"

Looking at the wisdom and choices of independent developers from "Pagoda coding"

Have you ever been attracted by some seemingly high-level technical terms and wanted to find out? However, when you really dig into it, you find that those gorgeous technology stacks may not necessarily solve the problems you are currently facing. Today, I want to use the story of an independent developer to explore our wisdom and trade-offs in technology choices.

Real case: from electric welding to self-service gym system

Recently, I was chatting with an indie developer friend who had an amazing life story. From the electric welding major in a technical school, to the film and television animation major in a technical secondary school, to self-taught as a developer, his life trajectory is full of changes and breakthroughs. What is even more admirable is that he not only applied the skills he learned to actual projects, but also launched a self-service gym system in a short time.

He told me that this project, from site selection to decoration, to writing the software system and connecting the hardware, was all completed by him. What's even more surprising is that when he was writing code, he typed code online directly in the Pagoda panel. This "simple and crude" approach allowed him to launch an MVP (minimum viable product) in just two months.

Technology choice: practicality first

This friend’s experience made me think deeply: Are we too pursuing the so-called “best practices” and “mainstream technologies” when it comes to technology selection? In fact, technology is just a tool to solve problems, not an end in itself. When choosing technology, we should be practical-oriented and pay attention to the practicality and efficiency of the technology.

As he said: "The development method I am familiar with now is the best method." This sentence tells the true meaning of technology selection. In the rapidly changing technology field, it is difficult to predict which technology will become mainstream in the future. Therefore, we should focus on solving real problems and choose the technology stack that best suits the current needs.

Wisdom and choice

When it comes to technology selection, we must not only pay attention to the practicality and efficiency of the technology, but also learn to make trade-offs. Sometimes, too much pursuit of technical perfection and comprehensiveness will make us fall into endless learning and practice, while ignoring the actual needs and time cost of the project.

Therefore, we should choose the most suitable technology stack based on the actual situation of the project. At the same time, we must also learn to give up technologies that may seem superior but are not actually suitable for current needs. In this way, we can realize the maximum value of the project within limited resources and time.

Conclusion

Through the story of this independent developer, we see the wisdom and trade-offs in technology selection. When choosing technology, we should be practical-oriented and pay attention to the practicality and efficiency of the technology. At the same time, we must also learn to make trade-offs and choose the technology stack that best suits current needs. Only in this way can we gain a foothold and succeed in the rapidly changing technological field.

Finally, let us return to the question at the beginning of the article: Have you ever been attracted by some seemingly high-level technical terms? Now, do you understand the true meaning of technology selection? Let us sail together in the ocean of technology and use wisdom and courage to pursue our own path to success.
