I stopped working with web development when I retired in 2014. After Microsoft released its version of MVC, this entire side of our profession went bat-s**t crazy with it subsequently creating the mess we see now.

Instead of throwing out the WebForms paradigm, Microsoft should have continued to refine it while giving the finger to all the purists who insisted that MVC was the "correct" way to develop for the Internet.

I still develop applications but they are purely for the desktop where few care if you are using the latest technologies...
