Difference Between Var, Let and Const in ES6

The differences between these three variables made me confused when I started to use ECMAScript 6. The most confusing was to understand the difference between let and var.
So let’s try to explain this difference.

var a = 'I am var';
const b = 'I am const';
let c = 'I am let';

What are the differences?
At first, let’s explain the concept of scope.
The scope is the fundamental concept in all programming languages ​​that defines the visibility of a variable.
The variables can be globals or locals.

I would advice to import the article here instead of link the article on Medium.

I find links to Medium extremely offending :)
and not gonna click on this pay 5$ absurd money wanna be network.

Keep in mind cross posting for medium and even here is ok, so you can post on both networks.

thanks but Medium is bad for code btw:

  • there is no syntax highlight
  • coloring and formatting is a pain
  • putting images, links etc.. is a pain

dev.to markdown is so so much better I love it.

Also Medium itself has a functionality to IMPORT an article from another source.
So my advice is to put posts here and then import them to medium if you believe you have bigger audience there.

I do not agree, I think that the editor of Medium is much more intuitive and user-friendly.

hmmm for a non developers yes for sure.. it has pictures :)

and Medium is GREAT for writers.

but for developers... markdown and asciidoc are so so more productive and powerful and fast.. :) and they are everywhere !

Also the dev.to writer has amazing liquid tags like

how can you do that in medium ? :) I dont know maybe for just writing without code, integrations, only for formatting maybe medium is great however I am far faster at writing underscores or single underscore and etc. here without a mouse compared to there.

P.S. Using a mouse for writing is simply wrong :) yes even for formatting.
