I frequently observe young(er) developers trying to sell me something we tried 20 years ago but abandoned for various reasons (especially in web development). I want to find a good way to encourage experimentation, but at the same time, I feel like the industry is continually trying to reinvent the wheel. How do you deal with hype? Do you recommend software professionals stay out of the hype cycle, or lean into it?
