Spoke to soon!

I just wanted to follow up on my post from the other day…on the hottest trends for 2016.

I think in retrospect, I spoke too soon.

I did some heavy reading and heavy binge-watching on YouTube overnight.

As a result, I came across a newer link regarding the “hottest and latest” for 2017: The Languages and Frameworks Tools You Should Learn In 2017

With that said, I spoke to a well-seasoned confidant and senior developer on the latest frameworks.

As a result of that conversation and what I was able to learn over the course of a few hours overnight, I believe that the best approach for getting MY feet wet, is to go by way of Angular  2 and TypeScript, And perhaps, I’ll need to sprinkle in some Bootstrap with a pinch of NodeJS.

Unfortunately, REACT and JSX will need to take a back seat to Angular and Typescript.

But in any event, this is all being done to satisfy my need to learn something cutting edge. With my interests leaning more on the C# side (and Java to some degree), it is in my best interest to pursue learning the Angular framework since it is more inline with my interests.

All of this “latest and greatest” technology can make your head spin or worse, lead to analysis paralysis and get nothing started.

Instead of watching all this tech come and go, trying to decide which is “The One” I just need to grab a seat, gather my bearings and “Just do it!” Life’s too short to be standing on the sidelines.

Don’t take my word for it. Beuller said it best, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”.
