JavaScript is not scalable

Thank you for inviting me. Imho, it does not matter if the person is a 90's dev. They clearly missed the past few years of development in the JS ecosystem. It is true that many years ago JS was ugly and not scalable, however it grew. A lot. We have so many new ways to scale JS, so many ideas to workaround JS weaknesses and so many strong new features. It is best to tell people who probably don't know better to first go and research the topic. If they don't, try to keep away, because such people tend to be toxic.

Why do you think people think bad about JavaScript?

JS has a stigma, and especially the devs who don't work a lot with JS might have missed all the cool new stuff.
