I thoroughly enjoy UI/client development, but the web app tooling (layer upon layer that is supposed to "fix" HTML/CSS/JS every few years) is frustrating to me. Thus, I avoid it like the plague. :)

To be fair, the JS ecosystem I think is a bit more tolerable than Python. JS isn't being promoted far and wide as the good-enough tool for everything like Python is. A lot of JS is focused on the "view", and I can see a dynamic language fitting there (though React/Redux is making me rethink that).
