There is no normal by Hugo Giraudel really resonated with me.
So I tried it for a while and now I know enough to build a site with Gatsby, or whatever. But that’s probably as far as I’ll take it. The thing is, I just don’t love writing React.
“If I want to get anywhere as a web developer I really need to learn framework X”.
Listen. You really don’t need to learn any frameworks to be a great developer.
It’s perfectly ok to follow your interests and ignore what’s hot. There’s still plenty of work out there that doesn’t involve React or getting hired via LinkedIn for that matter.
Just do good work and stop chasing the hype.
