Everyone is saying jQuery is dead these days. But I’m sorry, I have to disagree. While there are, of course, better, more “modern” libraries and frameworks out there, it really doesn’t mean jQuery is going to just disappear. Most people who say it is dead:
a.) probably don’t work as a web developer;
b.) are part of a trendy new startup that only uses 2017 tech or;
c.) just love to fuel the debate and ride the latest JS bandwagon!
