This month we are pleased to offer you a podcast interview with José Jesus Perez Aguinaga, who is a JavaScript developer. Back in October 2016, José wrote a funny and clever sketch of a conversation with a friend about how it feels to learn JavaScript today. The exchange highlights just how frustrating the large number of libraries, frameworks, and development tools in the JavaScript ecosystem can be, especially when it’s all changing, constantly. We interviewed José a couple of weeks ago to get his take on learning JavaScript, and agree completely with his bottom line: focus on the basics!

You can check out the slides of Jose’s recent presentation on learning Javascript and follow José on Twitter @jjperezaguinaga.
