What we think JavaScript looks like...

var todos = []

function addTodo(task) {
    todos.push({
        task: task,
        completed: false,
    });
}

addTodo("Feed my cat");

Is this language the best long-term choice for my client (or my company), or is it just closer to my own comfort zone?

@beccaliz

This project would be easier if <insert teammate here> hadn’t added Redux. 

Why should I use a tool like Redux if I can just build state management myself?

@beccaliz

I can’t get this to work because Redux is just so complicated
