How to make difficult technical decisions you and your team won’t regret

by Jordan Cutler

(1) Write out all possible options, (2) Cross out what won’t work, (3) Write the pros and cons of what’s leftover, (4) Become your end-user, (5) Talk out loud with a senior and junior engineer, (6) Consider how reversible the decision is, what the cost of each one being wrong is, and what room each one has for being extended in the future.

That’s it for this week.
