|Can one skip a generation and say learn backbone instead of jquery, or meteor instead of django?
I wonder if knowing the older technology is still needed to appreciate the new one; The elders of 'server side rendering' frameworks are saying in talks that what they do is virtually obsolete, as more and more gets rendered on the client. But of course there's a large chunck of applications that still are better implemented with RoR/Django. Since we all have a limited time to learn... in 2013, is it still worth learning RoR/Django?|
