re: What are your biggest struggles in learning JavaScript? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

My first programming language outside of the modified BASIC language for some old hand-me-down I got when I was 12, was Ruby. I went to a meetup and learned some of it. Damn did I love it. But I kind of knew then I wasn't going to work with it. JS is pervasive and while it is certainly monolithic in terms of tooling and ECMA trying to figure out what JavaScript actually is (is it OOP? Prototypal? Functional? ¯_(ツ)_/¯) I like it.

I still have some trouble with it but all in all. It's a fun language. Well designed? Debatable. Ruby is beautiful. But I guess JS is the way forward for now. (Seems Elm and Web Assembly might be better options?)
