This post should have been written back in February! But I’m bad at blogging …
I was building more apps and the realization that someone was going to come behind me and maintain these things started to hit home. I’ve been in this situation before, and long term product maintenance and support wasn’t something that I wanted to get into again.
And I was job hunting. “No, I’ve never used React/Angular but I wrote my own thing …” was going to go anywhere. So I quit cold turkey and started picking up React. I’d based a lot of my methodologies on it anyway.
So that’s where I’m at now. As an e-learning developer at Red Hat, I don’t bang out code all day, but React has been great for producing apps very quickly. I’m really happy with it.
