I know just enough about the front end to call myself a “full stack developer” and get past the HR filters. But front end developers are a dime a dozen and the pay shows it. I keep up just enough in case I need a job now and I want to get something fast.

When the day comes that I do decide to leave my job and I leave by choice, I’m staying buzzword compliant enough to be an overpriced “cloud consultant”, “digital transportation consultant” or whatever the hype of the day is.

But, I wouldn’t take a job doing Angular knowing that React is more popular and I would rather add React to my resume than Angular.
