re: Investing in the right technologies to avoid technical debt VIEW POST


Agree, I made the same experience with a project that was migrated from JQuery to AngularJS and was updated to Angular just one year later, the ROI was super negative. And I face this problem everyday with older projects that use old tech-stacks. People always discuss about new technology, but in many cases it does not really make sense to migrate, especially if client does not care.

I myself used Vanilla JS for years because I did not like JQuery. I skipped Angular, tried React but did not really like and now I use Vue. So my receipe is:

  • Use new tech if you really like it
  • Use new tech for new projects
  • Think twice before you migrate an old project to new tech...
