    I think with the stack changing so much, it's wiser to pick a technology and run with it for a while, even if it's considered "outdated". So if you want to pick up Vue.js right now, and for some reason in 2-3 years it loses its popularity... eh ¯_(ツ)_/¯ keep using it!

      I don't know. I think you can do a lot of useful things when you know any programming language. So learning to program is the key, not the tech stack or its newness. If you know Python and Unix type stuff which is not particularly modern (this stuff dates back 20+ years) you can do so many useful things.

        Oh absolutely, I'd agree. But assuming the OP is getting into the web stack, the broader frameworks and way of working changes frequently, which has a significant effect on working in teams and the way developers approach and reason about their code.

        A baseline knowledge of HTML / CSS / JS is absolutely necessary to navigate the changing climate with confidence, though. :)
