When we educate the next generation to take over the running of society the term STEM is sometimes used to refer to the skills needed by future scientists and engineers. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. STEM topics are covered by Tek Eye, however, the focus is more on the engineering of computers, i.e., the technology behind computers and their programming. On Tek Eye, it is referred to as STEP for Software, Technology, Engineering, and Programming.

Use the KISS Principle to Build Software

Tek Eye is a big believer in the keep it simple stupid (KISS) principle. When developing software avoid heavyweight, bloated, over-engineered, propriety frameworks. Otherwise, developers spend more time working around framework nuances than fixing the problem for which they were hired. Bloated propriety frameworks will eat money over the lifetime of a software product. If architects can design buildings following a less is more principle, then developers can write lean software. The Unix philosophy must be used for the best modern agile software development. As an example of KISS, the core CMS code that runs this website is less than 40K of PHP and does not use a database.
