Is it worth learning jquery today? I heard that it's not used so much now and I don't want to waste time on something I won't us

jQuery is the most used JavaScript library. https://w3techs.com/technologies/overview/javascript_library/all


It’s still the most used but people are using it alot less. I would still recommend learning it. The course is really quick and theres some cool stuff you can do with jquery


I got the impression that jquery was losing market share but this post tells a different story. https://w3techs.com/technologies/comparison/js-angularjs,js-jquery


It’s just now being used less, but not as much as people think, so chaces are you will see it at your jobs for the next decade or even more possibly. I’d say it’s worth having at least a little knowledge in it that you can lean on when you need it.


Despite what hype they might have you believe, jQuery has a larger market share and is not going away anytime soon. Feel free to learn it. It is worth the time and effort.
