At DevLink a few weeks we held open spaces on the theme of “good enough”. I started a topic on building internal application frameworks and re-usable code bases, thus the title. This was an interesting topic to me because my role at work the last several months has been to create this very thing. It is an interesting hat to wear because instead of a team’s clients being entrenched in the business, the clients are fellow developers. The question is how do you go about building this type of framework and what are the things you should watch out for as you go down this path. Below are notes taken from this open space session along with other guidance. Please feel free to continue this conversation here and within your own blogs.
