Yes please :)
Of course every new shiny thing is not worth learning; however, what to learn is up to the individual software engineer. It takes experience to learn to navigate through this and admittedly, not everyone has this. That’s really not a community issue though, it is one of personal growth.
I do agree 100% that the author of the original piece is definitely not arguing against learning; however, let’s be honest…a LOT of people that agree with the sentiment are those that would be happy to keep the status quo and never learn a new library/framework ever again.
This line you wrote may actually strike a chord with some people and they may actually get mad at you; however, it’s an important statement because there are a ton of developers out there doing exactly this and they would like to do more but are absolutely terrified to try. Good job stating what a lot of people are afraid to state.
As a side note, I would add that a more user-friendly (albeit, less academic) curried function would allow full and partial application. It should be noted that this rendition does not handle the full-application case.
