re: Let's Talk About Var, Let and Const VIEW POST

re: Please let's not talk about var, let, and const... Again. I think this is like the 10th post on the topic that I've seen in 2020 :/

Dev.To is all about providing an encouraging place for programmers to share their knowledge and help each other learn.

There are lots of reasons why someone might want to write an article. Here are a couple I just came up with:

  • There are new programmers coming into the field all the time that haven't seen those x other posts
  • One author's writing style might "click" better with another
  • It helps the authors learn about their subject more deeply
  • The author might be new to a community, trying to develop their voice/tribe
  • Sometimes the comments draw out interesting new insights and knowledge for the people involved

Dev.To is an amazing spot for all of those things. Conversely, if you are looking for deep cuts or novel programming information then you might want to check out papers-we-love or reddit instead.


Totally agree with you here! This is one of the reasons I use dev.to and not stackoverflow or credit...


Right, but there are only so many unique insights and perspectives that someone can offer on a topic that's already been written about by millions of others.
