Absolutely, glad to help.

I’m glad to hear that I’ve motivated you to continue the conversation. Since you mentioned encouraging new users into the fold, I wanted to add that another drawback to the state of the Javascript world as it is today is that the barrier to entry is much higher than it once was. If Javascript continues to evolve in the way it is currently, it will be impossible to build a proper web app without learning a whole butt load of tools, most of which have relatively steep learning curves. I, for one, am feeling the pain of working for companies that spend months trying to fill its web developer positions. The last thing we need as an industry is to make it harder for new comers to jump into the mix. I wish I had answers or suggestions to make things better, but I hope at the very least that starting/continuing a conversation about it will help improve things.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
