After leaving Raritan I’ve been in the process of retooling. Used Java/Applets, Flash/Flex and now I know I have to move on to html5 and mobile. While reading about all the possible tools/frameworks I have to learn, I came across the below rant on a discussion about this topic on Hacker News. The below comment was very amusing/appropriate and to the point:
halfquarter the price
p.s. it would have been a longer rant today, I have lot of new things to add to it, sadly things didn’t get any better: Now I’m trying to choose between yeoman and brunch, coffeescript vs livescript vs typescript, LESS vs Sass vs Scss vs stylus, Haml vs Jasmine vs that weird language called HTML, testacular vs mocha, fixtures vs mocks, RequireJS vs CommonJS, with almonds or without, I started using underscore then figured out it’s already “old school” and I need to actually use lo-dash. So I think I’m going to take your advice ;).
