Survey Results

Is the process of writing software becoming harder and more complicated?

Survey period: 16 Dec 2019 to 23 Dec 2019

Complicated meaning more pieces (build tools, deploy tools, different languages, multiple systems), and Harder meaning each piece is harder to learn due to the depth of knowledge required in each to be productive. We'll ignore the dealing-with-people aspect here
