I'm a dev with about 10 years experience. I came into web from a brief stint in graphic design. For most of my career I did both UI/UX design and front end coding (SASS, BEM, JQuery, vanilla JS).
However, now the world is changing and frameworks like React, Angular and Vue are predominant. The simple fact is I can't wrap my head around these. I've been working with React for 2 years (along side the normal stuff I do), completed 2 Udemy courses, 1 book, and countless tutorials online. I've even payed a couple of people to tutor me one on one.
But, the truth is, it's just not sticking. Coming from my design background I just don't understand it - I lack the layers of understanding of JS (and node, TypeScript, CLI, npm, yarn, Babel, ES6, etc). And, to be honest, I don't have any interest in this kind of depth of programming.
So, I need to bite the bullet and ask the hard questions: is there a future for a front end dev who doesn't know how to use React/Vue/Angular? Or should I start looking at other careers?
Many thanks in advance.
