They also talked about a new standalone debug from Mozilla named debugger.html, optimization of bootstrap libraries in JavaScript, the complexity of JavaScript development in 2016, the preference of flavours of JavaScript among developers, etc..

Summary of the podcast

We are going to start about a topic which is basically I think a humor article with the title "How it feels to learn JavaScript".

Then we are talking about another article somewhat similar topic but different in the sense that it talks about the state of JavaScript 2016 in terms of JavaScript flavors that are being preferred by different developers.

Then we have an article still about comparing the different ways to declare a variable besides var, which is the original way there is also let and const, so we are going to comment about an article that compares these ways of declaring a variable.

Then we have an article that claims that JavaScript and Node.js continues to heat the world. So it's just more to cover many places where JavaScript is being used nowadays.

Then there's an article about a new debugger from Mozilla called debugger.html which is a standalone debugger.

Then there is an article about optimizing the startup of JavaScript code with a technique that gathers, I would say bootstrap code for your application to execute faster.

And then finally we have a topic on another the debugging way, this time using Chrome in a way that you can work both browser side in the server-side on Node.js.
