[Opinion] Why is JavaScript so unpopular?

Hey developers ๐Ÿ‘‹

I recently met a 90's developer and we were having a casual conversation about tech. On him asking, what stack do we use in our company, I answered "the JavaScript Stack".

He was shocked and replied: "JavaScript is not scalable and you should consider rewriting the app to Python."

Well, I told him all the popular apps which are built on JavaScript and he was like they all have some or other system which handles traffic separately and it's not JavaScript which is handling the traffic.

I had to quit the conversation as it was a birthday ceremony and I didn't want any fight. :)

Why do you think people think bad about JavaScript?
