- When you know the basics, you will be able to tell when something is easier to do without the library and when the library is helpful. You won't have to trust that it's necessarily better just because it's a library method. It may not be.
- Frameworks and libraries extend functions that somebody else wrote, so you don't have to. Let's just face it, John Resig and the jQuery team could probably write loops around you with their code. They are good at what they do. The best part is that they already did it, so you don't have to. You can focus on other things!
