How it feels to learn JavaScript in 2016
Jose Aguinaga

Look, you just need to know that functional programming is better than OOP and that’s what we should be using in 2016.

As I started programming using very functional Assembler (actually NEAT3 on an NCR mid-range computer and then IBM Assembler) back in the early 80’s, that comment cracked me up! I remember when we had to go OOP using C++, Smalltalk and that new thing called Java just to be cool. C was faster but now we HAD to go OOP to maintain our skills. And now we’re back to functional programming. The more things change the more they stay the same!

I was just happy I knew what 30%–40% of the tools and frameworks mentioned were. Wait till you kids get my age and we’ll see if it still makes sense…
