Don’t be sad. What you learned will be helpful. You may not always manipulate the DOM in the exact same way, but what you learned will transfer over and help you. And don’t get the idea that you are a dinosaur if you use jQuery. Sure, it’s not as popular and is declining, but it is still useful in certain instances, and knowing how to use it is helpful because a lot of code you see in other’s projects and on StackOverflow will be using it.
YOU CAN FIND THE PROJECTS ON THE MAP. AND DON"T WORRY — YOU WILL BE CHALLENGED!!! YOU CAN USE SUBLIME TEXT IF YOU WANT. THEY ARE FULL, COMPLETE, FULL-STACK, STATIC, DYNAMIC PROJECTS TOO!
