Starting Somewhere: Return to JavaScript

leave a comment »


I started down the Salesforce trail a scant two and a half years ago. Today, eager to build useful Lightning Web Components, I’m advised a foundation in JavaScript is essential.

“No problem”, my naive mind declared. I’ve worked with JavaScript for over ten years… just not much in the last eight or so. Meaning, I missed the advent of ES6. Where to start, then? Have no fear, Trailhead to the rescue.

I found some terrific trails relating to the “recovery” effort and, good news for me, I don’t have to start from scratch. With this post, I’m launching a series of posts, “Return to JavaScript” in which I return to a landscape that seems both familiar and alien. I return from when I created my own libraries and toyed with early AJAX using jQuery and Dojo.

The new landscape is filled with wonders and I hope you’ll join me.
