Thanks for the detailed and fair story.

Hi Oleg Proskurin,
I had experience with general programming concepts and JavaScript before working on this. Luckily, I was able to follow along with most of the the JavaScript code. The hardest part for me was getting through the build process to get my environment set up.

I can’t even imagine how difficult it would be for newbies learning JavaScript from scratch to contribute to Open Source projects. Do you think it’s a good idea to recommend that new developers interested in contributing to Open Source to first learn the fundamentals of their chosen language first?

Like what you read? Give Anthony Ng a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
