Getting Started With the Terminal, Git, and Node
Eric Elliott

“Chances are, you won’t get far on your JavaScript journey without them.”

Absolute rubbish. Javascript programming has nothing to do with terminal, git or node. NOTHING. They are optional tools used mainly as a “look mum, no hands” kind of activity in between actual programming. Good javascript programming is about well organised efficient logic, not “install everything known to man with one click because that’s how I roll”. No wonder websites these days are crammed full of too many libraries and frameworks. It’s developers thinking they’re smart by installing an array of crapware in their project and pushing a gigantic mess of code live and wondering why it takes 2 minutes or fails miserably on a mobile device or slow connection. End of rant.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
