t looks nothing like “your father’s app dev,” which involved a code editor, compiler, and few other tools. In today’s world, we see developers struggling under the weight of an ever-expanding toolbox


Ah yeah, because 2000s dev, where write in one application, then another app (or command prompt) to source control if lucky. than open command prompt again to compile, and then zip the lot to remote to server and attempt to deploy it without completely borking the system

Yes, visual studio and other IDE (I assume iv only seen vs and vs code in last 10 years) - are daunting with many bells and whistles, but end to end application life, and deploy can be 90% done in one ide, that is amazon. Many menus ignored, but when need to do that 1 thing, its there and works (not always intuitively but works), and failing that a packing download second away from a vast community to add that support feature, or bug fix.

As to increasing maintenance over new features, well yeah depends on perspective. Work 5 years on 1 project with 2 years of that intensive testing and fixing before final no touch no more release, or 2 months POC, then into "maintenance " aka extending functionality.
