Write your own frameworks.

You learn a lot.
Your framework might solve a problem your ecosystem needs to have solved.
By your tenth one, you know enough to write one worth wide adoption.
Progress in our industry depends on all of us pushing it forward.

Imagine a world without Rails or Django or Express or Node itself. Imagine a world in which some killjoy told the authors of those frameworks not to learn and practice and scratch their own itches.


You (yes you) get better at your craft by taking on problems you find interesting.

Don’t let people tell you not to work on them because they’ve decided in advance you’ll fail.
