“If you had a choice between a lawnmower, React, Vue, Svelt, and an electric skateboard, choose Vue.js.” — @jakecodes [0:36:03 ]



“I want to learn all the programming languages, even if it's like, nobody uses them. It's like talking to a bunch of different people.” — @jakecodes [0:47:24 ]



“If you're going to build a game from scratch and you can always do whatever the hell you want, you can just technically put something in C++ and then have something in Vue.” — @jakecodes [0:54:44 ]
