re: If I don't use React, am I still a developer? VIEW POST


Thanks for your post! The funny thing is I feel the same way because I still feel most comfortable using Backbone.js, npm, and gulp.js - all relatively new tools/libraries (although several of these seem to be considered “ancient technologies” by some). I am a self-taught developer/designer as well. I had played around with HTML in 1997 but really didn’t fall in love with it until 2011 when I discovered JavaScript and realized I could make fully interactive art/websites. I wonder if this specific type of “imposter syndrome” is inherent to self-taught developers who view programming as a means to an end? Just a thought. Thanks again for sharing!
