re: Learning the Granular Details of a Programming Language? VIEW POST

re: So the hard answer is: it depends. It depends on where you are with your current knowledge of JavaScript. It depends on where your interests are....

Amazing response! I work React everyday at my job and I find myself not truly understanding what’s going on in the code around certain things like classes, promises, observables, etc. This makes things quite difficult to work with at times, so that is my motivation for trying to learn the core parts of the language for myself.

Thanks for your reply, it’s given me confidence that I’ve likely taken the right approach.


I'm in a similar boat, trying to eat up as much JS as a I can because I love working with front end, but often find myself floundering because I don't understand what's going on in the background. I'm learning from the beginning, but I've already been able to solve a lot of problems that I was stumped by before.
