If you're following the SharePoint community, you've probably heard of the "SharePoint framework in his own words" video series. https://www.voitanos.io/ is behind that initiative
( @andrewconnell founded voitanos recently)
The idea is to get the thoughts from the community and people who have been around the SharePoint development for a few years. If you don't know that series I'd encourage you to check it out and I also hope that the product team behind the framework is listening the that super valuable feedback.
When I was at Techorama in Belgium a few weeks ago, I had the chance to connect with Andrew, and aside from speaking and beer tasting, I was honoured to be interviewed for that series.
