The web today is the equal and opposite reaction of what it once was. If you where around during the rise of jQuery you might remember starting to use plugins for just about everything, jQuery and vanilla became distinguished ways of working, in fact when I was junior, I actually thought that jQuery was some sort of language. Anyway the point is the work and solutions where piecemeal, you would often have to find a conversation and stick to it. There where hardly any style guides to live by.
Then we all started saying MVC MVVM MMMMMM and WOBLSNAP, at this point I was confused, what the heck is MVC! It turns out that frameworks like backbone and handlebars sort of helped answer. Despite that MVC is nothing new. Angular came along and everything changed again. The first question I have about this section of time was and still is, why does nothing stick, why must everything try to improve on everything else?
Today we are at the point of saturation if there is such a thing, React Vue and even Angular are all capable frameworks but more than this, they make you feel you must do it thier way, that they are the center of your stack universe. Why? Well brand is a major factor, they must be adopted to survive, but none fundamentally trump the other, Why is that? Are you just using them waiting for the new hotness, or perhaps SPA apps are broken in the way we architect them, reinventing what the browser can do because the browser has not solved the problem of loading.
It all comes back to rules, if this is going to be the future, who is going to tell you how to do it?
Throughout the last year, I have worked part-time as a working student and also studied at the university. I was not the first and not the last one who has combined that during their studies, but the problem for me was, that at the end of the day I have felt absolutely exhausted mentally and physically. That caused problems with my health and motivation to continue working on my goals or anything. (yeah, “goals,” I wish I had something more specific at that time).
