Visualizing Closures with the VSCode Debugger

Let use the VSCODE debugger to visualize a closure to help us understand what they are.

I consider myself a visual learner so it helps me to see the thing I am trying to learn. So I am going to set breakpoints and looking directly at the closure in the debugger. This should also help you understand what a closure is.

Are you a visual learner? Does this help you understand closures?

I'm hoping to have more on debugging in Node. I don't think I covered enough here :)
