In this blog post, I discusses the concept of Essentialism, which involves focusing all of your energy on one thing and doing it well. I explain how many of us tend to spread ourselves thin across multiple tasks, leading to a dissipation of our energy in different directions. I then make the case for how this concept can be applied to software development. They mention that in Domain Driven Design, Eric Evans discusses the idea of core, generic, and supporting subdomains, which can be leveraged to streamline and simplify software development. By applying the principles of Essentialism, developers and the software they build can prioritize what’s truly important and avoid getting bogged down in unnecessary complexity.
