Not sure how involved all of you are with programming... As in if you do it at work as well as home but I was just wondering if any of you are working on any un-handmade projects. I started a web development project a while back with some friends and I want to keep it going because the idea/service is a good one, but unfortunately, it is not handmade as this was before I even knew what it was to be handmade/knew C well... And I've spent countless hours fighting with dependencies and "containers" for the typical OOP crap. C# is so based off of abstraction that I'm not even sure how to make anything handmade-style with it since most C# training/requirements just want you to know some framework. For example the project uses ASP.NET MVC, Entity Framework, React, and all the bloatware that comes with them.
Is anyone else still in this boat outside our awesome little community? Programming native now, I find it harder and harder to want to go back to abstractionland, but at the same time, although those projects may be bloated, they are still programming/software. I read a few bios on here and I know some of you (I think at least one staff member as well) come from web dev so Im sure you can relate here. If not, do you have to do other types of programming for work that you are not too fond of? Share stories. Preferably ways to cope as well :P
