In Depth - JavaScript Rediscovered

How I rediscovered my love for JavaScript after throwing 90% of it in the trash.

My journey with JavaScript started way back in 1997 with Netscape Navigator 3. Back then you couldn’t do much with it. The coolest use of JavaScript was to create mouseovers. At the time, that was some high tech :poop:. Being able to change content on the page by just hovering. mind blown. This was all pre-DHTML BTW, so you couldn’t even hide / show DOM elements. It was still oh so magical.
