Discussion on: What are your biggest struggles in learning JavaScript?

Can't see this happen.

Elm is awesome, but it's also rather different and self contained. Many (JS) devs sadly just don't like FP.

Yeah, I understand your point FP to me is great but I just started programming and didn't like learning OOP with JS. So it was easy for me to switch paradigms or practices a little. Everyone has there preferences though.

Ironically, FP-ness is general and transfers even to OO languages. E.g. JS's, reduce, filter, lambdas, etc.
