Mastering JS' 7 Best JavaScript Fundamentals Tutorials

At Mastering JS, we think learning JavaScript fundamentals is much higher ROI than learning any particular framework. Two reasons why:

1) Fundamentals rarely change. The JavaScript language spec doesn't allow backwards breaking changes. The void operator will work the same way in 5 years as it does today.
2) Fundamentals are the same regardless of what framework you use. If you switch jobs tomorrow, you'll still be able to apply your fundamental language skills even if your new job does things differently.
