PHP and jQuery. They feel old and outdated to me (especially PHP).


Same here, I sometimes need to use PHP in my projects, just a tiny bit, but I just refuse to know a language that is no going anywhere.


I learned jQuery, but never bothered with it in a project. Most of jQuery is redundant. Traversing the DOM is simple now in vanilla JavaScript. Animations can be handled by CSS3. AJAX is simplified now in the promise-based fetch.

So what's the point?

I tried learning PHP, but I found the language inconsistent and wonky. I didn't enjoy working in it, so I decided to not continue.
