It’s easy to forget that part of learning to code is learning how to even get a program running, which is often more confusing/frustrating than the code.

I feel that environment knowledge is often discounted over programming knowledge. Using the command line, knowing how to install a program, knowing how to install dependencies, dealing with version control, and knowing how to debug all of the above, all of this is vital knowledge that’s hard to learn.

So yeah. If you’re learning to code and find this hard, well, it is! Be kind to yourself. Environments are unintuitive and fickle. We’ve all battled through this stuff and still do.

This is a big reason why I still use lodash or Ramda in a number of my projects. Clever code is rarely readable code. It feels good when you write it, but in a team working on production code readability is your no. 1 priority.

Javascript syntax has come a long way, but sometimes a utility library is still useful to abstract common patterns that would be verbose or unreadable with today's js syntax.

Last week, someone tweeted: Woah, this is elegant JavaScript. Need to conditionally add a property to an object? Here’s a slick approach. The right-hand side is only applied if the condition is true. If the condition is falsy, the spread operator does nothing. They shared this code snippet from an article by Andrea Simone Costa: const obj = { ...condition && { prop: value }, }; This is not a dig at Andrea.
