Entrepreneurship for Engineers is a https://thenewstack.io/entrepreneurship-for-engineers-how-to-build-products-customers-love/ by longtime New Stack contributor https://thenewstack.io/author/emily-omier/ that explores the concerns of developers who want to build tools for other developers — and build a business around their innovations. Even worse, having too many features in a product can make the product frustrating to use. Ending up with a product that does too much is often called “feature bloat” or “feature creep.” For the purposes of this article, feature bloat is when a product has too many features and tries to pack in too much functionality.

Once you understand why a customer is making a feature request, it’s often possible to find a solution that doesn’t involve adding something to your product.
