Being a hacker has come back to bite me in some ways, though. Poor architecture decisions can really slow you down once you’ve gotten past the proof-of-concept stage. I’ve rewritten products from scratch after POC and I gained iteration speed because of it, but I do wish I had thought a bit harder about the arch before I jumped in.
Agreed. That’s what pushed me the other side. I think the answer is somewhere in the middle… at least, for me.
