Myth 4: You Don’t Need to Learn ES6
- ES6 allows you to write shorter and more expressive code utilizing features like arrow functions, promises and classes.
- It also integrates built-in modules so you don’t have to rely on external libraries.
- With the added features available in ES6, it makes your code easier to read and understand as well as faster to debug and maintain in the long run.
Myth 5: You Don’t Need Frameworks to Develop a Web Application
It is true that you can develop a web application without any framework. But it’s also important to understand that frameworks help you to write code in a structured and organized way which makes it easier to maintain and debug.
Frameworks also provide a coherent set of tools and libraries that help speed up your development process. For example; React, Vue or Angular help you write components and take care of the view layer. Similarly, Ember helps you handle your application’s routing and so on.
Moreover, frameworks make it easier for other developers to understand your code. So if multiple people work on the same project then having a common “style guide” provided by a framework can be incredibly beneficial.
In short, while it’s technically possible to develop an application without frameworks, there are certain advantages that come with using one: faster development time, better organizational structure and improved readability of code being some of them.
