You don’t hate JavaScript

But something else might make you think you do

  • People who hate the Event Loop and mistakenly think they hate JavaScript
  • People who hate frameworks and libraries written in JavaScript and they cannot make the distinction
  • People who hate browser quirks and think JavaScript is the cause of them
  • People who cannot learn JavaScript although they try hard to. Hearing that JavaScript is simple to learn and yet struggling to learn it makes you hate it
  • People who get focused on the bad parts of JavaScript and lose sight of the great things about it
  • People who do not know the bad parts of JavaScript and use them, which would naturally cause them lots of problems.
  • People who depend on standard libraries in other programming languages and find the lack of one in JavaScript a reason to hate it
  • People who are easily overwhelmed with the amount of packages, tools, and things they need to learn to work with JavaScript in different environments
