I have a friend who is a real software developer, and he let me come in and meet their team and hang out with them for a couple of hours to see what they do. I told one of the developers that I was learning React, and he said kind of jokingly “Oh, that should be around for another 3 months!”
Do other people have that same sense, that React won’t be around much longer? I chatted with him a little more, and he said that it’s fine, and if you’re a developer you’re always learning new frameworks, and he said that he himself has learned dozens. In the end, he said it’s probably not a waste of time to learn it, but just to know that once you learn it, there’ll be something else around the corner to learn.
I guess if you want to go into this field, you probably just have to be cool with that. I thought it was kind of interesting though. Anybody have any thoughts about it?
