Hello, reader!

My name is Eugene Lazutkin.

I'm a software developer based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Lazutkin.com is my professional blog, which contains short writeups and presentations regarding modern web applications. All articles here are written by myself, unless stated otherwise.

Different people, different opinions

It is practically impossible to travel to Muslim countries without hearing some anecdotes about Nasreddin Hodja. Here is one (the source):

Hodja was once a judge. One day a man came to his house to complain about his neighbor. Hodja listened carefully and then said to him,

— My good man, you are right.

The man went away happily. In a little while the first man’s neighbor came to see Hodja. He complained about the first man. Hodja listened carefully to him, too, and then said,

— My good man, you are right.

Hodja’s wife had been listening to all this, and when the second man left, she turned to Hodja and said,

— Hodja, you told both men right. That’s impossible. They both can’t be right.

Hodja listened carefully to his wife and then said to her,

— My dear, you are right, too.

Sometimes I feel like Hodja.

One day I read an opinion that the reuse of 3rd-party components helps TG. A corollary is "it hurts Django." I heard it on several occasions. I agree that reuse of popular components can help to bring existing users into fold. Probably it is good, I think.

Another day I read another opinion that Django is, well, better regardless of all other things. And I agree too. The author criticizes Django on some accounts. I agree again!

On the other hand, Internet is big enough for a few web frameworks. Different people have different opinions.

Am I being inconsistent? You bet! You are right too.
