Discussion on: The Shocking Immaturity of JavaScript

I'm not the biggest fan of JS if I compare it to Haskell, Rust or even TS. But unfortunately this article failed to give me any real information about what's wrong with the ecosystem around JS than one person's struggle to make sense of things. And I come from a background of creating apps with a scale of 100s of thousands of users and like 10k concurrent users.
I started reading this article with a predisposition of actually understanding issues.
I'm not sure if you should use the language as a sum total of the tools you know of or available to you. If you do need to focus on said tools; try purchasing some tutorials. That's how I get up to speed to any new thing, be it GraphQL or whatever. There's crazy good resources around.
Also, no offense, but with the current functional capabilities of JavaScript, if I see an actual for loops instead of functional maps; I'm gonna call out that stale style of coding for what it is.

You're literally doing what I said not to do in my article: "RTFM is never the correct response to DX issues."

That still doesn't form any coherent argument. Assertions without reasoning hold no value. I'm all ears to actual issues. It seems you're just pissed there isn't easy to follow docs around specific tools?

That's not what my article said at all, but I have no wish to banter further. Cheers! ✌️
