Functional Javascript

I think a good way for one to introspect on how they approach designing systems, is to reflect on what one does NOT use.

It helps answer the question, "How minimalist am I?"
Or, how "As simple as possible but no simpler" am I?

I created a list of "program constructs I do not use" here...

I agree that this a very interesting way to quantify one's approach. With almost any language, there are far more tools / keywords / packages / frameworks / etc. available to us than we would ever use (or ever want to use). The tools you purposely choose to avoid probably say a lot about your coding style and your priorities when crafting solutions.
