    Got an email from codeacademy today. If you are a programmer maybe you could be interested in this:


    "Hey there,

    There’s no question: it pays to know your way around the front end of the stack.

    According to Glassdoor, front-end developers earn about $88,680 per year on average. And jobs that require knowledge of React.js pay some of the highest salaries in the industry — around $102,589."

    No i just pasted the important part. This "React.js pay some of the highest salaries in the industry — around $102,589." They say if you know "React.js" you can find a lot of high paying salary jobs.

    Well, yes, because React is one of the 3 most popular frameworks for javascript. I'm missing the point of the thread tbh :S

    Just letting members who knows javascript here they can focus on React.js because demand for it is higher.

    React allows developers to create large web applications which can change data, without reloading the page. The main purpose of React is to be fast, scalable, and simple. It works only on user interfaces in application. This corresponds to view in the MVC template. It can be used with a combination of other JavaScript libraries or frameworks, such as Angular JS in MVC.

    React is a pile of crap. Also, you are not hired to know to react, after all, it is just a template system, and a lousy one.
    Why people like React? beat me!. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Anyways, this post sounds like a "get rich soon" scam. Now, let's say you know to react, then you must know javascript (and all the tricks of it) and you must know express (why? because react is more useless than a potato without a backend) and you could learn Mongodb cause it's easy but with a terrible (bad) performance and you don't want to use it in production.

    Fast?. I don't know. Scalabe? HA, simple? HAHA.

    React is only the V from MVC, where V stands for JSX (that is not HTML) plus javascript. So, we could use React or simply use a template system (that we could learn in a weekend) + javascript.

    I hear somebody says React is not so bad but it was designed for Coffescript, not for JS. It explains a lot.

    It's a damn framework, those things come around and go all the time. Know the language itself and you'll find your way around any framework

    Click bait title. Feels like a buzzfeed title. Also the mail is just pure and simple marketing bs. (not targeting the op, but code academy). JavaScript per se won't make you earn that amount of money, it's what you do with it and your overall abilities. Learning react from an online video site won't definitely make you make 100k a year. 100k a year jobs on any language usually require at least 5-6 years of experience and usually require you to know master more than one language.

    Sorry don't want to sound mean but I get triggered with the "learn to 'code' in three months and make ***,*** a year" bs. There are high earning doctors and there are low earning doctors. Programming is not much different.

    Is Code Academy trying to advertise a paid React course? I mean it is kind of pointless sending members emails about this if its not part of an advertising strategy for their own courses.
