for the graybeards

Modern JavaScript for Ancient Web Developers. It reminds me a bit of that How it feels to learn JavaScript in 2016 that was making the rounds last year.

Sometimes I'm torn. I understand why Vanilla.js is so popular; when you cut your teeth on "all you need is a browser and a text editor", and you can get a perfectly lovely edit/save/reload/run loop, it's an article of faith that for serious work, you need these big guns. Or like I said the other year - some frontend developers won't feel like real developers unless it takes just as long to startup the frontend as it does the back.
