re: Javascript VIEW POST


All you have to fear is fear itself.

One suggestion I have is, if you have learned any functional programming in your studies or work, look into how it applies in JS. JS is, you see, a functional language masquerading as an imperative one. My big breakthrough in understanding came when someone gave me the (simplistic but useful) advice to treat JS as 'LISP with C-like syntax'. IOW, understand functions as first-order data, and start passing them as parameters to functions, etc. Start thinking of polymorphy in mathematical terms rather than OOP terms. Compose rather than inherit to create classes.

And read/watch a lot of good tutorials. I can recommend MPJ's FunFunFunction series on YouTube. Here's a link to a playlist of JavaScript functional programming vids.
