X is out. Is Y dead?

No. πŸ˜›


This is meant to be a joke, so please don't think I'm making fun of you personally if you've asked this question. I've been guilty of doing this in the past too.

The Apple LISA is dead.

And 2,700 of them are literally sitting in a dump.

Personally, I hope to someday get my paws on a working Apple Lisa.

Surely you got that the wrong way round? Y comes after X ;)

You know, the crazy thing for me about this is that I thought the same thing years ago when MEAN became a thing. I was so excited for MEANβ€”and here I am still using PHP, one of the most controversial languages out there. πŸ˜†

I love PHP so I can relate. They said the same thing about Ruby and PHP, just saying. On a deeper level, I like JavaScript, it basically pays my bills these days, but I still think It's not going to be as mainstream as some people think on the backend: sure it will grow, but it doesn't have the amount of packages and ease of development PHP has and it doesn't compare in terms of integration and speed with Java and C# yet and maybe it will never do. It will just coexist with the others

I should not have clicked "Notifications" while taking a drink of water. I nearly tested the water resistance of my mechanical keyboard.

FWIW I didn't join Dev to write 1-word posts. I write other articles, though sporadically.

But this post is especially for Node and Deno right now since that's the hot topic for at least the last couple of weeks.

As for publishing rules, you can always talk to staff and even start a community discussion I suppose.

Have a good day either way. πŸ‘

Y is dead... but it could stay with us for years as undead legacy

But what if those years include new feature releases and brand-new projects?
