S1:E8 - Our Least Favorite Things About Our Favorite Languages

In this episode, we get into what are our pet peeves and grievances about the coding language we love the most. Guests Addy Osmani, engineering manager at Google, and Ridhwana Khan, senior engineer at DEV, both chose JavaScript, and they dig into why the language could be more opinionated, whether there should be a standardized library, and more. We also hear from our audience about what they dislike most about their beloved coding languages.

Loved it ! agree on JavaScript being more opinionated. I think sites like MDN are playing important role for developers in building strong foundation in JavaScript
