jQuery is fine. I've even occasionally throw in some knockout, I've been forced to use backbone (not all that bad of an experience), still need to investigate vue.js, won't touch angular, and do a lot of with Bootstrap and jQWidgets.
So, I'd say I'm definitely at least a shade of grey.
Aurelia for my HTML layer, with C#/MVC running on core 2 providing nothing more than a json/rest api is my drug these days.
If I want something like a date/version in my page, I just add a simple ajax call to grab a bit of json from a simple light controller (usually 4 or 5 lines) and add it into the footer class in my front end master template, and hey presto, all automagic
Couldn't agree more Marc, which is why I stick with Aurelia these days.
It's 3yrs old now, stable, very mature and not going anywhere soon.
It might not have the hype, marketing and glory that the Likes or Angular, Vue & React have (Basically Goggles and/or Facebork), but it is maintained by a principle program manager at MS, and is included in the MS Dotnet Core command line SPA templates.
As for the free for all... hell where not even out of January yet, and I'm already aware of 4 new JS application frameworks... sigh
I can't help but think that once I've gotten a job doing MVC, someone at Microsoft will have a monstrous bowel movement, and they'll pushing new sh|t down our throats...

Geez Louise! I'll stick with WinForms, myself. 5 or 6 lines of code (depending on how you fetch the last edit date, obviously) max. Even on a WebForm it's pretty simple. Adding to list of technologies to avoid: MVC. Got it.

If you think that's fun, you should try implementing OpenId using Nancy and OWin - I've spent the entire week learning how to implement OpenID authentication in a web app, and after almost a dozen sample projects ended up building a library to simplify everything. Some of the obstacles faced:
- The System.IdentityModel.Tokens.Jwt library had an object that other libraries depend on for JWT tokens, but they removed the object almost a year ago, and to this date still haven't brought back, forcing you to use a 'fairly old' version of their library in order to support the dependency, and also forcing you to use the older versions of all of its dependent libraries. DLL hell, in short.
- You have to use the 'old' Graph API code to interact with Azure AD B2C if you want to retrieve information about users, groups, group membership, etc.. I say 'old' because everything in Azure is set up to use Microsoft Graph - well, everything except Azure AD B2C.
They might work with Active Directory but in my experience, they only get you so far. There are many differences between the products and with Microsoft Graph coming online and maturing, the differences are only getting greater. The book does help understand the trajectory, but the point really boils back down to - Microsoft really could be making things easier for all of us.
You could say that, but personally, I beak to differ!

Writing a good manual is an art and I took a look at the following historic example I found online. After all, I have worked with similar devices. Most of you will probably not be able to read the text, but the sections about fueling up (and the dangers of the three sorts of fuel) or the section about how to set up the ignition give me the creeps, especially because of the forced humor throughout the entire manual. Just look at the illustrations.
