What would you like to do?
Let's not forget about jQuery

In this talk I'd like to use 5 minutes of my time to explain to the audience why jQuery is simply way better than React.

  • Does React have a fadeIn() method? Nah, I don't think so. You need to install a react-transition-group package which weighs over 3GB.
  • Can you do $.get(https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12345/adding_two_numbers_javascript) in React? NOPE.
  • Remember React 3.3.1? Me neither, because they didn't make it. Meanwhile in jQuery land: https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.3.1.min.js
  • Can you learn jQuery for free? Sure! Can you learn React for free? It'll be $500 USD and your left kidney for a conference ticket.

And many, many more.

(This is a completely serious lightning talk proposal, I promise.)

I hate this conference but if all these lighting talks happen, count me in.
