43. JavaScript Closures & The Why of Programming

Aperol On Ice

Many of us focus the majority of our time on learning solutions, tools, npm packages and the rest of 'The How'. In this episode I explain why it's drastically more important to be married to the problem, rather than the solution, aka 'The What'. I use the example of JavaScript Closures to demonstrate why it's important to understand the problem before you even begin to discuss potential solutions.

  • In a world where anyone can be a publisher, not every publication is going to be great. It just can’t.
  • It all starts with the problem, so be married to the problem, not the solution.
