“Just” is a dangerous word.

“Just update your ruby gems, generate a new SSH key, and run a git rebase…”

I don’t envy those just entering the field of web development. In addition to learning the fundamentals, there’s an expectation to be proficient in an increasingly exhausting laundry list of buzzwords and technologies.

So think twice before suggesting someone “just” [insert any task here]. You just might make them feel like an idiot.
