Importance of Understanding Core Languages
Incorporating Vanilla Workflows into Your Workflow of Choice
Use Tailwind With A Decent Understanding of CSS
It's essential to note that there is nothing wrong with Tailwind and other popular CSS frameworks. However, to use them effectively, it's necessary to have decent knowledge of CSS. While it's enticing to start with a CSS framework or library, it's better to learn CSS first.
Learning From Prior Mistakes
Shifts in Industry
Learning frameworks like React and using CSS tools like Tailwind does improve your employability but not at the expense of understanding core languages. Schools teach today's frameworks, but by the time the students graduate, they become outdated. Even jQuery was thought to be a permanent website development fixture until something better emerged. The industry shifts with time and adapts to modern languages and tools over time. Having a great knowledge of these core languages provides a better foundation for adapting to changes.
Lastly, I'd like to thank my patrons who make all this possible: James, Rico, Michael, Simon, Tim, Johnny, and everyone else who's contributed to my work. Until next time, keep making the web a little bit more awesome.
