This part of javascript.info is memorable ;)

Overall, I liked your post, thanks for sharing these tips.

On the other hand, I was a bit skeptical about some parts.

For example: how building "two cyphering CLI programs with C" would be relevant to modern web development? Apology for any ignorance, I just can't see the value...

I think the main reason to build those CLI programs was to get familiar with writing code.
At that point in time, the student knows almost nothing.

It is just a practice to write code blocks, variables, and functions.
For sure, cyphering in C is not common in web development :) Maybe this topic was chosen to interest the student in some problem, and let it solve it with code.

Just a fun, small program to get you started writing code :)

Got it, sounds fair to me! Thanks for clarifying.
