i don't like APIs or syntaxes that make it hard for me to insert console.log() at specific steps of the computation.

* A lot of pseudoscience around "testability" * "Your code isn't well-tested" is interpreted as, or is a sugarcoated version of, "you are a sloppy engineer" (not saying this is right) * Many clean code bases were totally wrecked by dependency injection in the name of testability

There is a similar effect in rust where people play borrow checker jenga instead of calling clone() because it feels like “losing”

Keep telling yourself it’s okay to use any. Then you will be productive again. Once you work in it a while you’ll start to lean on any a lot less.

React is going strong, and the combo of ReactJS + ReactNative is particularly compelling. Lots of iOS and Android apps are using it (including Office apps!).

I’m on my phone but the original open source release automatically bound methods to this. I advocated for it because it made should component update easier to understand. I believe the team profiled the fb app and found it to be a perf issue so it was removed

I wonder if this could be fixed. I know nodejs isn’t fork safe but maybe v8 is?
