Every framework you’ve ever seen is really just an echo of this statement:
My language sucks!

Ehi guys, if I would need to have data binding without using Angular/React or whatever, what do you suggest?

Welcome Frameworkless!

What is Frameworkless?

In a nutshell...

Frameworkless means to learn how to code without frameworks, learning from frameworks themselves

And to add a "No Framework" option on the table everytime that we need to start a new project or feature

And when using a framework, don't think that the "Framework way" is the only way

Emergent Design

...architectures should be driven by the underlying technical requirements of the system, rather than speculative planning for a future that may change.

The right architecture should be defined by your features...

Let the need for a framework to emerge

Framework Compass Radar

Introducing...

Choose a small set of NFR and put them on a Radar Chart...

All members of the team should fill the chart

Try to choose a framework / library that matches the values of the Chart

The importance is in the discussion itself, not in the tool

Longevity > Velocity

Longevity < Velocity

Tech decisions are not just about the code...

...but it's also about people!

Programming is a social activity
