The coolest articles that explain complex concepts in a simple way that I've read used metaphors.

What's cool about Web 3 is the speed of innovations. Literally, a billion-dollar market came out of nowhere 10 months ago.

I think perfect architecture does not exist because there is duality. Any architecture can be represented on a segment of duality: from loosely coupled abstractions to strongly coupled ones. Different moments in the product lifecycle require different architectures.

Need to bring a product to market quickly and you don't have a lot of money? Go toward strongly connected abstractions (monolithic) Need to make a product for many platforms and have a lot of time and money? Go toward loosely connected abstractions (microservices)

But what if the first case becomes the second and the second case becomes the first? Which architecture would be ideal, which way to go? There is no perfect architecture. Perfect architecture exists only at the moment.

Replying to @bespoyasov_
So, it went well 😼 I decided to wrap this topic up in a post. Here it is: dev.to/bespoyasov/clean-arch… It’s huge, make a cup of tea 😃

#5 The brain knows better than you The brain is a neural network, a supercomputer that has been trained for hundreds of thousands of years. It knows better than the prefrontal cortex (you)

When you see a person and you think there's something wrong with them, it means your brain has determined that there's something wrong with them. Even if you can't rationalize it, your brain has already made decisions based on the experience of hundreds of thousands of years.

That's what intuition is. The result of a trained neural network called brain. Very often you have to trust it and not try to rationalize what your brain has already calculated for you. Your brain knows better.

There are 15 insights in total. Many of them I understood, but can't explain to anyone. Our brain is a weird and interesting thing. I hope this will help someone. Overall, it was a great experience and I recommend it to anyone with unanswered questions.

Also, a couple of things that have changed after vipassana: 1. I made my book free. I realized that I don't want to sell this knowledge, I want to share it. So use it. 2. I made Coding Fantasy free. 3. Starting next week, I will resume the 3-2-1 newsletter. It's good to be back
