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

You should always know the base technologies - I totally agree with that. For as long as I remember there have been frameworks and they can greatly simplify your life (and sometimes make it really miserable). But as long as you know your way around in the technology your using, you should be fine.
I'm not really coming from the Javascript world, so I'm constantly amazed by the vast number of frameworks (probably annoyed would be the correct word here). It's really hard for me to choose the right one. The customers I work with are used to technology that's been around for more than 30 years, so they tend to be terrified by frameworks, that might be dead in three years time - but that's a different story.
