Good article/chat and would like to add one note:
As a backend-first developer, TypeScript has been the lifesaver. It brought me closer to JS than anything else. So yes, choosing one framework (in this case, TypeScript) to learn things before fully diving into the world of JS, is also a useful thing to do.
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.
