The trick for #2, if you can't trust that to not happen, is to not tell anyone about your prototype. Just come back with your great questions and findings. Time to analyze requirements is a fair request. Up to you how to spend that time.

Putting quality to the side and building a quick prototype will teach you more about the problem space than any other practice I've encountered. That's not to say you should delay quality to the end. But there is also a "too early".

It's not very functional style is it? Does anyone love the look of result = add({ firstNumber: 1, secondNumber: 5})? This really deserves an in depth article / discussion of the pros and cons of each approach.

Or not doing too much: even if it takes year, month, day, minutes, seconds, milliseconds. There are better rules out there to help you decide if your function is doing too much.

Not recharging your batteries is a huge productivity killer.

Consider check out the free Coursera "Learning How To Learn". Great class for devs.

React has been around for over six years now. And it's in high demand. But for sure something better will come along. And then you'll learn that. Becoming a dev means you will never stop learning if you want to keep up. Learn how to learn fast.

Imagine if our nation had a leader who could set the example by not "finger-pointing, name-calling & screaming with your keyboards". Might help.

Because it's not normal to respond to tragedy with facts and numbers. It's a bit off. It's a bit emotionally detached.

Emotionally tone deaf response to a tragedy. I'm confident you wouldn't do this at someone's funeral.

Good thing people mostly do what they want instead of all acting exactly the same. Some people can be breeders, others can enjoy their free time. Cool how it all works out, eh?

After driving a fully electric vehicle for a week, it's just plain *better* in every way. I am super all in. If there was an electric minivan available I would literally go buy it tomorrow to replace our Odyssey. If you're curious, check out this video

If you have trouble finding interesting things to do with lots of free time, that's a sign of depression. Consider seeking help instead of worrying about people who are just fine.

I'm confident most of us share the same meaning for the word "steal" and that's not what happened in this case.

"Steal" is a really strong word that doesn't accurately represent a move from Medium to their own platform. Full disclosure: I have volunteered for fCC. Great team.

Sounds like unnecessary gate-keeping to me. If someone does 100% JavaScript programming and nothing else and it's frontend, they are a frontend programmer.

And then spend your money on a mentor if you even need it. The fCC forums might be all you need when you get stuck.

That was good one. Didn't even see the difference between the two until I ran it.
