Tell us your story about mastering Js

    I spent 25 years grinding JS in some dark ass room and now I mostly understand promises.

    There are no masters of js, just a long list of slaves who "think" they have mastered it.

    I wouldn't call myself a master of JS. I have jumped into the abyss of JS when I was annoyed of how a framework needed you to define components, directives and sevices. Using TypeScript for everything, implementing shizzle on this framework wasn't beautiful, so I started creating wrappers around this crap.
    I've had to find out when and how to bind functions to a different "this" context and how to annotate functions for dependency injection. The protype hierarchy can get quite hideous...
    I really like the flexibility of JavaScript, but in depth, it is not a language for absolute beginners.

    @C0D4 is this some kind of personal attack?

    Nobody 'masters' JavaScript. Whenever you think you understand it, it slaps you in the face with some random DOM error.

    If you ever think you've mastered JavaScript, try building a browser game.

    Those fuckers are just there to hurt you

    echoing the whole "no masters" sentiments here.

    but what got me to really get working with JavaScript was actually converting it into TypeScript when I had to update an old AngularJS app to Angular 2 for a job. I also came from the .NET ecosystem so that was what put JS into terms I could easily understand.
