*This morning*
HR Lady: we saw your profile and we think it fits what we're looking for, I just need to know what you use for front-end programming

Me: I use ReactJs, AngularJs and for backend NodeJs

HR Lady: Hmm, so you don't use Javascript

Me: ... (unhandled exception in my head)

Me: M'am everything I mentioned is using Javascript

HR Lady: oh! ok.

    Well, what if they are looking fo a vanilla JS front end guy?

    None of those bullshit new shit would be useful. Not that they are useful anyway.

    Bottom line is: JS sucks balls.

    the front end guys just overdo it. they make a single 15 line function into a 5MB framework that executes a 14 line function, just so they have to write one line less and call it "efficient" and "fast"... sorry if i'm stepping on your toes but sadly it's true

    I woulda been: "What's your title here?"

    "HR Manager" (or something)

    "Soooo you're not a part of human resources?"

    @Abrynos certain libraries are more than semantics, React does a lot in the background to boost efficiency on updating states in complex frontends

    But I agree that several megabytes of npm packages for a "hello world" is a little insane
