Came across slides for the course Software Studio, about the lowly craft of web development, taught at MIT.

Course page from 2013
Course page from 2016

What’s curious, the 2013 course taught Ruby on Rails and SQL for backend development, while the 2016 course teaches Node and MongoDB. Also, a notable addition to the 2016 course is React (which just goes on to show how commonplace and inescapably default React has become; it truly is the new jQuery).

I was, however, shocked by this slide (from the lecture notes on React):



Never has the phrase "the view in MVC" (which has since generally been retired anyway, because it's not a fitting abstraction for thinking about React) been intended for use in the context of clients and servers; it has always been intended to explain React’s place among other client-side MVWhatever frameworks.
