Composition over Inheritance

There’s this notion in these posts that “developers” means “JavaScript Developers”.

Real developers can write code in multiple languages, including JavaScript. Some developers, like myself, deplore JavaScript on the server side for anything but a trivial application. The spread of “JavaScript” everywhere ignores a few decades of programming language evolution. In my view, Node.js is a big step backward.

So when you write “the majority of developers”, perhaps what you really meant is “the majority of JavaScript developers”.

JavaScript is one of the two most widely used programming languages. The other language is called Java and it bears very little resemblance to JavaScript.
