GeneralAbout that Github article on Cognitive Load? Pin

I'm looking for an article I saw but did not keep. Every developer should read it. If you happen to know a link to it, I'd appreciate it.
I logged into Github after not being there for a while and for some reason it took me to an article in a repository by someone with a name starting with a 'Z'. I was thinking "what is this" and had some trouble getting to my home page, so I read it. I didn't really register it at the time, but it was amazing. It largely said that almost everything we've been told about programming best practices leads to excessive "cognitive load", meaning our minds are getting kicked by the intellectual demands. I've known this for a while, especially with the demands of cloud, security and DevOps.
I also liked it because it described practices I have done for decades, but never much admit to because they are not popular... I write really complicated stuff and need all the help I can get.
Consider, if I'm right, it popped up because the Github folks, very smart people, though that developers should see it. I agree.
