Great article and compilation, +1 for the MDN reference, been using it for a decade, I think.

As far as development environments are concerned, I know Eclipse isn't the first IDE anyone thinks of when it comes to JavaScript, but it's a great IDE for Java Enterprise, Spring, PHP, etc. Combined with the CodeMix ($) plugin, you get access to VSCode's JavaScript capabilities in Eclipse, which are far better than what Eclipse gives you out of the box.

CodeMix also makes it possible to work with modern frameworks like Angular, Vue, React, etc., with first class support for these frameworks in Eclipse.
