Despite its hyperbolic title, The End of Front-End Development is a well-considered piece by Josh Comeau. I share many of the sentiments expressed here, though how things will actually shake out is anyone’s guess.

In my view, this is one of those areas like climate change where it’s critical to ask “but what if we’re wrong?” Even if some of the doomsdaying doesn’t come to fruition, it’s important to plan like it might. There are too many people shoving the real risks and threats into a messy closet and shutting the door; I think it’s so critical to have open and nuanced conversations about all of this.
