Discussion on: Investing in the right technologies to avoid technical debt

I really love this article and insight. When I first started on my engineering journey, someone told me don't be invested in frameworks, they are forever changing. Know the fundamentals, everything else you can learn on the fly or even on the job. Not saying, you can't learn programming languages on the job as well, but it's a lot easier transition if you know the fundamentals and you're just coming behind learning the frameworks at your particular place of employment. That's why I don't really like companies that insist on hiring only Angular or React developers, as if JavaScript isn't the fundamental language behind it.

Thank you Donita! I agree, fundamentals are way more important than knowing the trendiest framework.
