Book cover for Consider This: Moments in My Writing Life After Which Everything Was Different
We’re trained to live in constant denial of the miraculous. And it’s only by telling our stories that we get any sense of how extraordinary human existence actually can be.

“A property value can be any JavaScript value except for undefined.”
Douglas Crockford, JavaScript: The Good Parts

“Attempting to retrieve values from undefined will throw a TypeError exception. This can be guarded against with the && operator: flight.equipment                              // undefined flight.equipment.model                        // throw "TypeError" flight.equipment && flight.equipment.model    // undefined”
Douglas Crockford, JavaScript: The Good Parts

“The other form (called for in) enumerates the property names (or keys) of an object. On each iteration, another property name string from the object is assigned to the variable.”
Douglas Crockford, JavaScript: The Good Parts

“Some languages offer the tail recursion optimization. This means that if a function returns the result of invoking itself recursively, then the invocation is replaced with a loop, which can significantly speed things up. Unfortunately, JavaScript does not currently provide tail recursion optimization. Functions that recurse very deeply can fail by exhausting the return stack:”
Douglas Crockford, JavaScript: The Good Parts

“If a return expression is not specified, then the return value will be undefined.”
Douglas Crockford, JavaScript: The Good Parts
