do you understand the lang well before you use frameworks?

normally, the way a programer uses a lib or framework is that he already knows the lang well, so uses the lib that makes it convenient. However, that doesn't seem to be the case with JavaScript jQuery, or lots other framework in JS or other lang, these days.

these days, many programers just learn the framework, without knowing the language well. I think this is particularly so with JavaScript and Ruby.

is this good or bad?

in one sense, obvious bad. The sign of times, when idiots reign on earth…

but perhaps that's actually progress. Who understand how sine, cosine is implemented? raise your hand.
