Best argument for official drivers

Jonathan Ellis:

More qualitatively but perhaps even more important, this addresses the paradox of choice we’ve had in the Cassandra Java world: multiple driver choices provide another barrier to newcomers, where each must evaluate the options for applicability to his project. Having just done such an evaluation to settle on Cassandra itself, this is the last thing they want to spend time on.

And that’s the best-case scenario. More often, a fragmented landscape leads to many solutions, each of which solve a different 80% of the problem. Better to have a single, well-thought-out solution, that lets people get started writing their application immediately.

This is the best argument ever for having official drivers.

✚ In the early days and over long time it’s quite difficult for a company to offer only official drivers. But there’s a solution for that too: recommend one. And support its maintainers.
