I highly reccomend this book if you don't know functional programming in js https://www.manning.com/books/functional-programming-in-javascript

— Even the first chapter has so much to teach

— Also even more js devs could benefit from learning proper OOP best practices such as unobtrusive js, and the law of demeter

— All too often js devs take advantage of the antipattern js allows, and that is another contributor to bad js in the wild imo

— This is incorrect and should never be used

<input type="text" name="date" onchange="validateDate()" />

— Javascript

A powerful, object-based, interpreted scripting language, created by Brendan Eich, most commonly embedded directly into HTML web pages to manage client-side interaction.

JavaScript is so beautiful and elegant it brings tears to my eyes. I love using it. It completes me as a person.
