We actually need more JavaScript frameworks

It’s easy to become overwhelmed by the growing number of JavaScript frameworks available today. Believe me, I was. And so I built a tool to help developers choose which JavaScript framework to choose. But it was rubbish.

Join me as I share my weird and winding journey through the JavaScript framework landscape. Starting with an overcooked meme, to building a terrible website, and finishing with a call to action, we’ll delve into the lessons I learned along the way, including the importance of asking the right questions about your project before choosing a tech stack and framework.
