My son has started learning javascript at school, but he is complaining that all the $ signs are ugly! Yep, they're teaching the kids with jquery.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry 😱😱😱

    Honestly, just to start learning to code, it's a useful framework. He just has to learn at some point that jQuery is not meant to be used in prod...

    Back in my school days in late 90s they were teaching us DOS and BASIC, which were extinct even by that time. But that has helped me learn structural thinking and basic data structure, then learning serious programming later was familiar, and here I am, professional programmer for 20 years .
