Discussion on: Is there a future for a front end dev who doesn't know how to use React/Vue/Angular?

The question is not the framework, but you have justified doubts: as interfaces grow more and more complex, do you need more software engineering skills to remain relevant?

The answer is probably not. Altough some people are good at both programming and designing, I still see quite some UX/UI desgin who do some Figma/Sketch, do quite some HTML and CSS and then some frontend engineer inject some logic into that (with React or wathever). Don't underestimate the fact that those "react engineers" are backend guys in disguise: we just moved some logic back to the front.
