Tips
  • Have a "just get it working" mentality. Then clean it up after

Tips
  • Follow your passion. Go Play. Write some new code. That’s how you do your best work. Try to enjoy what you’re doing.
  • There are lots of people coming to JS now. Lots of OOP programmings flowing into the ecosystem. JS can be a great FP language though. There’s a lot you can learn from studying FP in JS.

Tips
  • No matter how well you know something, keep your mind open to learn even more about it.

Tips
  • Functions should be input to output. Type systems help a lot more when you compose this way.
  • Stay away from Object|Any :)

  • Don’t wait for a rewrite! Introduce a new language incrementally. Build a small thing that works. Get that small thing in production. Then expand.

Tips
  • Use an ide or vim setup
  • Learn to reason about type signatures alone
  • Constraints are great, but start simple and dial them up later
  • Write simple code w/o abstractions until you feel the pain - then learn abstractions to solve that
