I don't know why, but Scott's comments in here came off pretty condescending.

If you're a developer on Twitter, it's really easy to fall into the trap of believing that the only developers that matter are front-end engineers. Just because helping develop the kernel, or integrating a new product on an already existing, proven stack that runs Angular for the front and Spring in the back, does not provide shiny things to look at doesn't make them less important, and it really comes off as if he's saying the "famous developers" should feel bad about that.

I don't know, maybe it just rubbed me the wrong way.

Sometimes it can be mind-blowing the lengths front-end devs will go to avoid writing a little html file with self-contained script tags for a one-off throwaway page.
