JavaScript Series: Back to Basics

Front-End industry changes very quickly nowadays. Unfortunately, as it improves we forget about those who freshly started out. Grunt, Gulp, Webpack, Rollup, Transpilers, React, Angular, Flux.. wait.. what? I can’t really imagine how difficult it must be for them to catch up.

What can we do to make these people feel more comfortable?

There is plenty of things we could do. I personally believe we should focus strongly on the basics and make them easily available for everyone so that anyone can learn the language with little or no effort. Once they understand the basics we help them move forward by explaining how complex systems work, what maintainable code is like and what are some common patterns used in the industry.

A good JavaScript foundation is worth ten times the knowledge of the frameworks which is why I wanted to start these series.
