Do you carefully consider the technical debt implications of introducing dependencies to your code before adding it to your code?

If you answered this either way, please leave feedback behind your justification in a reply to this toot.


@cadey If there's a dependency, it'll cause me problems, so I try to minimise the number of dependencies.

If I'm considering a dependency that brings in a thousand others? I'll generally re-consider.
