Disagree with both comments. Learning new tech to be more productive and keep company applications at the leading edge of functionality which is a competitive advantage. Old tech is getting impossible to recruit for. Experienced Devs have retired and new Devs aren't interested in being onboarded, otherwise they would all be learning COBOL.

That’s a good point. However, I do think trying to learn EVERY new framework to stay competitive isn’t the best course of action. If you’re learning specific new frameworks used by companies or sectors or cities you’re interested in, I get it.

EVERY is a bit of a strawman, the argument was about someone introducing a web framework. It mentions Vue, which is actually one of the easiest to progressively introduce into a web page.
