Agreed, Javascript is a non-pinhead (functions only return scalars) language. It also allows for methods where the mainstream had none before.

Having had the power of APL on the server side since last millennium, node.js vs PHP et al hasn’t concerned me.

(note to self: research ‘client-side JS v server-side JS.’ Perhaps not as disjoint as I assumed.)

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?
