What kind of impact will Electrode have on the community and the path for people trying to learn React/Javascript?

Know that I haven't read too much fo the documentation yet but I am curious about your opinions on new technologies like this. Does this affect how people should be learning React? Should they start dabbling with building apps using Electrode as well?

Always hard to say whether they take. I like to wait a bit and see how the community responds, ever since I made the mistake of learning Prototype before switching to jQuery :)

Electrode at first glance looks more like a replacement for Meteor than your standard React app. Meteor, however, is simpler to learn and use. But for a "generic app", does it matter what you use? The only reason I can see an app needing a framework at all is because it has requirements that the framework is particularly suited for. Otherwise, you're adding complexity for no reason and no benefit.

The frameworks that get me excited are things like Firebase, which have the potential to remove complexity by offloading hard things like databases, authentication, and backends to a third party. These are things that most apps use, and most developers spend significant time on. Frameworks that are simply a more complex way to code the same thing "but now with MVC!" are much less exciting.

I'm a UI Engineer who has been using React/Redux extensively. I've been frustrated with the lack of an opinionated app architecture and structure for React/Redux apps. Electrode looks like it may solve some of these frustrations.

Electrode is very new, so we'll see how the community reacts. At first glance, it looks good. The only negative is that it comes from Walmart, but hey...they were kind enough to open source their ideas.

There will always be new languages and frameworks coming up. You can't learn them all. Just learn to watch out what new ones pop up and learn to follow them. If they start to gain traction, then you might want to start looking into them. Until they really take off though, I'd leave it to the hobbyists to learn and pick it up and see if they commit to it before spending time with something new.
