Hi! I think is really dangerous talk about arrow functions as simple syntax sugar, because aren't. The "this keyword" binding is an example.

Arrow functions aren't just another syntax, exists an impact in our code, our logic and way o programming when we use them.

Just for clarifying, I apreaciatte the post but in my opinion arrow functions explain in this way could confuse to a people who recently start to programming or use javascript.

Thank you! I definitely plan to talk about more advanced concepts in the future, but I’m trying to keep things simple at first. I definitely want to circle back around and get more in depth with functions because they are important. Thank you for your suggestion! I’ll make sure I include that.
