Since those early vanilla days, I’ve learned to live in library land with tools like Prototype & Script.aculo.us during the early days of my Ruby on Rails journey, jQuery a lot since those early days, and other bits & pieces like Underscore.js and Lodash as time has gone on. I’ve also been thrust into various frameworks, like AngularJS, Angular (2.0 & beyond), and, much more recently, React.
Lately I’ve been wanting to actually learn some of the computer programming basics that I never formally learned. Sure, I’ve been using many of the concepts, techniques, styles, and best-practices just by mimicking the tutorials and open-source code repos I’ve digested along the way, but I recently had an experience that made me realize it’s probably way past time I at least knew the names and basic details of these things.
