I swear: I read Playboy for their articles!

  
Perusing through a pile of old Playboy a friend collects, he showed me this, knowing my sphere of interests in history. I always said it: I read Playboy for their articles!

Read on the Web: Modern JavaScript for Ancient Web Developers

  

After working for 17 years as a web integrator-now-called-frontend-developer, seeing the rapidly changing javascript landscape and its new techniques, libraries and patterns can be exhausting for an ancient/old-schooler like me. But once you get the hang out of all these new tricks, you’ll feel happy to master it all.

“Learning modern JavaScript these days can feel like a futile exercise in WTF. For those moments you’re wondering if you missed your calling as a barista, Google’s Addy Osmani has the right advice:

I encourage folks to adopt this approach to keeping up with the JavaScript ecosystem: first do it, then do it right, then do it better. […]

It takes time, experimentation and skill to master the fundamentals of any new topic. Beginners shouldn’t feel like they’re failing if they’re not using the library-du-jour or reactive-pattern of the week. It took me weeks to get Babel and React right. Longer to get Isomorphic JS, WebPack and all of the other libraries around it right. Start simple and build on that base.”

It is a law of history, he wrote, “that contemporaries are denied a recognition of the early beginnings of the great movements which determine their times.” For the benefit of subsequent generations, who would be tasked with rebuilding society from the ruins, he was determined to trace how the Nazis’ reign of terror had become possible, and how he and so many others had been blind to its beginnings.”
