Some time ago, I gave a talk about boring technology at Booking , which means choosing the simplest, stable and maintainable solution you can get away with for solving a problem at a given scale.
Apparently Dan McKinley has similar views, which he explained in Choose Boring Technology . The writeup explains nicely what boring technology is, and why to prefer this. Never forget your mission, which is business, not technology. The technology is a necessary tool, but likely not your friend .
