Hey Dillon, this was a really thought-provoking read. I totally get that best practices can sometimes stifle creativity and slow down progress, but I think there’s a fine line. For teams, especially those with mixed experience levels, best practices can provide a crucial safety net. Your points on when to break the rules were interesting, but maybe sharing more concrete examples could help illustrate when it’s worth taking the risk. Overall, great job sparking this discussion!
