RAZERZ332469d1. Types defined at runtime (can be overcome using typescript though)
2. Same story as PHP, the language is good, but it's the people who shit on it. Since it's relatively easy to pickup, shit code can be seen and it's bounced back to being "js's fault"
There are prolly more, but I casually use js and can't comment on more than this :)
oudalally583469dJS never answers my emails.
It's not so much that it's bad, it just has its priorities wrong.
Still, you'd expect that considering the upbringing it had.
Now ASP, thats different. Good parents, good school, decent neighbourhood, yet it still went awry.
By 18, ASP was into all sorts of shit. Breaking into cars, stealing handbags, drinking paint.
JS never had that start in life, and to be honest, I think we need to cut the guy some slack.
Yeah, he's got issues, but he's trying much harder than ASP ever did, and he only has one leg!!!
monr0e143769dJQuery is still kind of painful to use, but that's what happens when you have a semi-language in a stateless(ish) environment. JQuery is, however, what I would have preferred vanilla JS to look like. In my opinion its a little more readable and a certain degree more relatable if you're coming from a backend background.
I still prefer writing apps in something like C# though. Little bit of razor, little bit of value-added JS to make the page move smoothly.
Since it's a static language, it'll be easy for testing and debugging.
