About software development, a friend of mine used to say that after a while everything old is new again. We constantly invent new programming languages, frameworks and paradigms, but very little of it allows apps to do things that truly couldn’t be done before.
I’m comparing mobile apps I built 8 years ago with apps I built recently. Different languages, different tools, different APIs, but could the core of today’s apps be built with the tech from 8 years ago? Absolutely.
