Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Jquery, a dated/poor performing tool?
So alot of sources I look at online seem to indicate JQuery is becoming a thing of the past.
It's often cited as slowing down websites, being poorly implemented, and generally making other delevopmet in the back-end and front-end needlessly complex. I'm just curious what the Treehouse team has to say on this. Is JQuery really still neccessary for front-end developers to know? Has a new standard go-to library arisen that makes JQuery obsolete? So on and so Forth
Heyy Jacob, I'll definitely go through those podcasts
Hi Jacob, I have not personally heard any of the things that you said about jQuery. Just the opposite. My understanding has been that jQuery helps with cross browser compatibility compared to straight js. I'm curious where you heard that?
