In college, teacher teams us with other guy,
I tell him to do backend coding in JS
He says: Dude, What is JS?

    Well, why are you telling him what to do before knowing what he is able to do? So why are you telling people what to do in the first place?

    @JacksOnF1re not knowing about JS, if you code, especially if you do back-end, is weird none the less, or am I wrong?

    @klirix Do you really mean "knowing about" (as in knowing what it is) or "knowing how to write"? If you think all developers, especially back-end, should know how to write JS, I think you have an awful lot to learn.

    @samk I meant "knowing what it is", as it was in the OP's post. Saying something like "everyone must code JS" is incredibly stupid :^)

    @klirix I thought so - there was just enough room for me to be unsure! Thanks... 🙂

    @klirix but still.. know about js especially if you are backend. Up until recently, very few had heard about node.

    @Dentych I remember being all covered in RoR, when the hysteria around node started. It believe that not knowing about js, in last 3 years was impossible if you don't live under a rock, or don't do any web/game dev whatsoever.
