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


If you can produce quality and keep up with new best practices (not necessarily trends), then yeah. One of the reasons for hate of new tech is inability to learn. People still hate JS because their knowledge is stuck on old ES5 or the recent years fast pace changes, even though things got really settled for a while. Same for PHP hating (they're hating legacy stuff, while not aware of v7 changes). Same goes for trend followers who immediately look at others with disdain if their knowledge of news is old a few weeks...
