re: How to not be a dinosaur. VIEW POST


Thanks for sharing. I feel ya. I took a dev hiatus into design and management for some years, and I felt largely the same when I came back to full-time dev initially.

I still often ask myself why we've made all this so complicated. Why do we keep reinventing things that (probably) don't need to be reinvented. But it keeps things interesting and keeps food on the table. 😂


Back in the days the complexity/layering (like jQuery) had two major advantages (for me):

  1. easy of coding. $('#id') instead of document.getElementById('id').
  2. cross-browser compatibility. Not having to care about all the quirks.
