Hi Zoltan. I have similar plans for next year. However, instead of jQuery and Razor I am still sticking with React, but on the backend I am going to try .NET Core one day. Best wishes for 2020 :) !

I wish I knew React, for the moment, I will stay with JQuery and plain JS. In fact, my apps will have max 10-20 users, no real need for a SPA. So it's enough to have a server-side app for the business tools I build, for the moment. Thanks for the wishes :)

In my opinion it doesn't make sense to learn jquery by now and you should bet in react instead. You can use react in the scenario you are talking about with razor pages. I think it is easier and less error prone. React is not just for SPA and also supports server side rendering. It is as easy to integrate into existing web pages (or new razor pages) as jquery. Also, if you already have skills with C# you can also try Blazor and you will have to learn less JS.

I understand, I mostly refer to readily written libraries such as data tables.js, and using existing jquery plugins. Blazor server side is already on my list, but for client side I will wait until it matures.
