I really dislike JS and how it's spreading everywhere. Everyone seems to be building stuff on top of Node or Electron, leading to bloated, RAM-consuming programs that do simple things that don't justify the resource usage.
I believe there's also the factor of a high influx of bad devs, just like what used to happen with PHP some years ago.
I would use the IRC gateway for Slack if I could. I don't need anything better for chats. I can chat without GIFs.
I actually try not to use Electron apps, and look for native alternatives.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
