Discussion on: How to Determine if a String is a Palindrome (in JavaScript)

Yes, this was originally my goal. I love this that sparked so much discussion on different ways of approaching the same problem!

I mainly approached this (relatively simple problem) from the perspective of how someone might solve it in a more language agnostic, algorithmic way that touched on a few other aspects of problem solving that new developers might not have as much practice with, like moving pointers and checking/comparing string characters similar to how you might compare array elements.

I was aiming for more of an informational approach than the simplest solution, but I appreciate that there are comments on here now for folks to see other solutions that work as well (especially using in-built JS methods, since that's a perfectly valid approach too.) 😃
