Why are open source google projects hard to pick up?
I’ve heard countless stories of folks giving up on learning Kubernetes, because there’s simply too many abstractions. Same thing for when Angular V1 rolled out, and probably why Angular lost to React and Vue.
Are the rest of us outside Google all unintelligent or are Google’s open source projects over engineered?
To dive deeper, React elucidated a straightforward component lifecycle and its API is under a dozen functions. Years ago, when I picked up Angular for a team project, anytime I googled I’d find a stack overflow post, and the accepted answer was admittedly a bunch of hacks.
