Discussion on: You shouldn't focus on learning JavaScript frameworks

We been at this problem before, multiple time... even at stackoverflow... where there was a recurring joke of jQuery being able to answer anything in JS.

The downside since then, we have an entire generation worth of JS programmers who is stuck on jQuery and can never seem to move beyond them, as they never learnt the foundations of it. And will be stuck in its paradigm of thinking.

Sure, I may love vue or react now.... But who's to say 5 years down the road, with HTML10, all of it wouldn't be obsolete?

Sadly it seems us humans, are doomed to repeat past failures >_<
