IFFE is still around for many legacy code based - it would be a great addition for the article to talk through the performance implications for using IFFE's with JS. I believe Kyle Simpson talks about it in his YDKJS series!
Not taking away from the post or from IFFE's, just felt it is important for us to keep in mind :)
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
