Useful Javascript Tips and Practices

JavaScript (JS) is the go-to programming solution for the web to provide dynamic interactivity on websites. Web developers typically use this language for simple features such as  carousels, image galleries, fluctuating layouts, and responses to button clicks. At an expert level, JS can be used to communicate with databases to pull out dynamic content.

The jQuery Crutch

Front-end developers who dabble in JS commonly work with jQuery. Because of this, they use solutions around the web and apply it to their work. What happens is that they are re-purposing the code of others and don’t really code heavily on their own. By doing so, they do not learn the core portion of the language that are essential to developing complex and efficient scripts for projects.

Tips & Practices

Due to this, tips and practices will be valuable as it will improve your development skills with JS. Notable JavaScript masters have been using these techniques to write powerful, efficient code, which you can do too. To write JavaScript in its best practice, here’s an article that we’ve come across recently that will help you.

This is where Pure JavaScript kicks in. Reduce the appearance of bugs by taking precautions in the way we write our code. At the very least, it will detect the bugs easily without having to wade through lines and lines of code. More on that here.
