This question already has an answer here:
I've been on StackOverflow for some time, but relatively new to Programmers. I have a legitimate (hehe!) question for other "senior" software engineers regarding the desirability of in-house utility libraries, pros and cons of reuse vs. mindlessly wrapping of standard APIs, noob-friendliness of such code vs. utility gained, etc.
Is this an acceptable topic on Programmers? Is it too opinion based?
