Should I stick with Webforms?
I currently work for a Digital Agency and I have been tasked with building a new website for one of our clients based on Sitecore.
I have a couple of years of experience with C#/ASP.NET. Up until now most of the work I have done has been on ASP.NET Webforms, but I understand that Sitecore (and the industry as a whole) is moving away from Webforms onto newer technologies such as MVC, React, AngularJS and so on.
My worry is, that if I start a new project on a platform I am new to, would I not be better off sticking with Webforms to try and minimize the learning I have to do?
And if not, why not? The alternatives seems to be MVC, AngularJS and React, but I am unfamiliar with all of them. I do know a bit of MVC, but I wouldn't consider myself "experienced" with it.
I've been doing a bit of research on my own, there seems to be plenty of examples around on how to do Sitecore based on Webforms, even if some of the posts are a couple of years old by now.
Requirements for the site seem fairly straight forward. I will not need to integrate any third party tools or legacy code into my new solution.
