It used to be that the TODO app was a common way of demonstrating a specific language, framework or perhaps just as hobby project. Well, it occurred to me that now it seems that the new TODO app is a chat client. There are already many full-fledged “Slack Alternatives” and the hobby projects also seem to be popping up a lot. One of my colleagues was even starting out in Python by writing a chat app.

Ahh, how I enjoy making observations based on anecdotes and gut-feelings :-)
