    I understand looking forward and pushing the bar higher, however, in my experience (10 years) the business case for using cutting-edge technology has never been strong enough most of the time; it's usually just been "well lets just build it the way we want to and not tell anyone".

    Stakeholders want what works and what is maintainable. 90% of the time nobody cares about how the thing was built but that it just works.

    If Angular2/React/Vue is being used or if it is still running jQuery 1.7.x really only matters in dev/design circles and at meetups and conventions.

    "You should probably use it"? Why? Make a business case for it, then decided - but the blanketed "you should use what's cool" just perpetuates poor development decisions.

      You should use the right tool for the right job, it's not about what is trendy or cutting edge. In my opinion, the answer of which tool you use pretty much comes down to, it depends.

      I wouldn't use bootstrap 3 and jQuery just because nor would I use Angular2 just because. I believe development tools and frameworks should be chosen on a case by case basis.

      Am I developing something for IE10 or less? I can't use flexbox, I would have to use something older and supported for those browsers.

      Do I need to develop a native phone app that ports to iOS and android? I'm probably reaching for something like react native.
