    😱 Falsehoods Programmers Believe in

    Project mention: Why Modern Software is Slow–Windows Voice Recorder | Random ASCII | | 2022-10-01

As programmers, we're trained very well to think about edge cases and many of us become convinced that we can never tackle any problem in their full complexity, so it's better to leave the complexity to others and to program by gathering a bunch of third party libraries and plugging them together, regardless of the extra costs in performance or complexity.

    Project mention: Recommendation for geo TS library for FE for geo calculation like calculating distance between two latitude/longitude in meters/km for frontend etc? | | 2022-05-29

    Project mention: How to find out in which country a user is, based on his lat/long GPS coordinates? | | 2022-03-23

    What I would do now, is; use this library load the polygon GPS lat/long data into postgresql or dgraph, and then just query in which country the coordinate/user is. BUT I need it in production, and I already know that I will run into problems and spend time to fix them and so on. And maybe performance will suck and I gotta spend time fixing that too.
