A bit late, but I spent a bit of time getting more familiar with the javascript languages properties. Reviewing the behaviour of 'this' and scope, and also made the wonderful discovery of syntactic sugar for nested functions, and by extension, partial functions.

// instead of
const f = (x) =>
    const g = (y) =>
        x + y
// we can just write 

const f = x => y => x + y

Had not seen the latter syntax before yesterday.
