BTW thanks for the explanations :)
I read this post, largely agreed with it, but wanted to give this some thought.
I feel like my role needs to be that of allowing progress to happen while trying to re-enforce core values. My biggest opinion on frontend to this point has been to try to time the technology appropriately. I just haven't wanted to be on the front of too many waves even if they are great choices in and of themselves.
I'm probably down with this, and I feel like this could be a fairly community-led initiative. Me and the rest of the team just have to come up with a good shared understanding of the path forward.
We still have a whole bundle of JS that is definitely "legacy" at this point. So overdue to be made modern, so a pretty decent time to put some work into all of this, add better testing and make things more concrete on the frontend in general.
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.
