Takeaway: An exploration of what tools are Low-Risk (local developer utilities), Moderate Risk 1 (deployment infrastructure), Moderate Risk 2 (programming language), and serious risk (database). “When you do accept a technology into your stack, make sure it has an owner.

The right technology today will be the wrong technology at some point.”
