In the software world, there are often new technologies coming to market, new fields to explore, new techniques to use, etc. Filtering through these in itself can be a challenge. Deciding when to move forward with one in practical applications can be even harder. Many times as developers, we will be brought a problem that we can solve in a way we’ve heard about or read. This is when theoretical example attempts to meet practical implementation. We ask ourselves “Does [X] tool I read about recently solve this problem?” or “Would [Y] really work in my organization?”. This is where we can employ the proof of concept.
