The web: Build components not walls

With a new JavaScript framework out at the end of every other week, it's difficult to know what's the right choice.

Then when you finally decide, it can be a rollercoaster journey.

Looking at the job ads many companies still depend on 'legacy frameworks' and are locked in by what they thought was the right choice.

Then there's the case of having to deal with frameworks used in projects that were outside of the companies control such as when a company acquires another.
