People have said this in the past. Just after posting a simile about cooking and software development, it hit me hard how much more similar the two. More so then traditional "engineering" disciplines.

You get taught how to read a recipe and implement.
Then you learn that the recipe is at best a guide.
Each new project your recipe gets shorter, but the implementation time gets longer.

Day 1 - recipe is 5 pages long, has all the details, what tools you gonna use, methods described in detail.
Day 365 - a few bullet points, the world "cloud" on it own line. ๐Ÿ‘ your good to go and implement the companies new payroll system.

But seriously. Cooking has many ways to do the same thing. Yes there are "traditional" methods. You want a roast turkey, it has to be X Y and Z. Then a vegan comes in and shows you can have the same flavour, taste and experience at 1/5th the cost, lower calories.
Yeah, but SOAP will always be better then this JSON thing. Wheres the types!!
