"What's the difference between the right tool and an acceptable one?" #readingToday
What's the difference between the right tool and an acceptable one? It's a matter of context and costs. Every tool comes with a cost that varies based on the context in which it's used. In a production environment, operational experience should factor heavily into that cost analysis. Picking an acceptable tool is hard. It requires research and understanding. Its easy to fall into the trap of thinking you are picking an acceptable tool when really you're just picking the tool at hand.
