Front-End Development has Reached Unmanagable Escape Velocity

The Front-End/Javascript landscape has become a chaotic Tower of Babel situation. It's changing faster than anyone can keep up and people with merely a years difference in skillsets are having issues even communicating. It's not because people are lazy and not keeping up - you get on a year-long project and start with the latest/greatest and then tune out the world while you get that project completed, then look around at the end of the project and the world doesn't look the same anymore. 90% of the bleeding edge stuff is abandoned a year later. It's to the point of ridiculousness. We need probably slow down a bit and take a look at the things that don’t change all that much. Not only will this improve the quality of our work and the value we deliver — it will actually help us learn these new tools faster.

What to learn in order to keep up with Front-End development these days:
