Love your post. Personally I believe this is true of more technologies than JavaScript. That’s not to disagree what you said - all your observations are valid.

There are a variety of challenges our industry is experiencing that I personally believe stem from the desire to be popular with other developers, the misnomer that the best code comes from younger people, and a desire for developers to insert their personal preference into existing problems that have already been solved.

Of course that’s just my opinion, and I’ve been one of these people so I attribute this phenomenon to the growing popularity of our profession compounding these issues - not a specific generation of developers.

I’m thankful you’re raising awareness of this issue! We need more voices. I echoed a similar sentiment in an episode on my channel β€œWhy are you you making programming harder?”
