"...because of how much lower the barrier to entry level has become." Isn't this a good thing? Barrier should be as low as possible!
Yes, it is a good thing! And I know that if I was learning something new, I'd want there to be little to no friction as possible.
I believe I was a bit annoyed about how much time I put into learning about React patterns, and when to use classes versus functional components.
The stuff I learned over the time is not a waste of time, but it felt like that for a bit. I'm just human :)
You know what, I understand what you mean now. You are frustrated because you wished it was that easy when you had to learn about classes vs. functions. Sorry for some reason I read it as a "gatekeeper" kind of thing. My bad!
