Explicit is better than implicit!

Posted by Uberto Barbini on March 25, 2008

Today at work I gave a little help with Javascript to a collegue of mine, he’s a very bright guy but he is touching Javascript for the first time.

So after a little of pairing, we saw that in a line a class method was used as it was a standalone function.

Given that there’s no ide for javascript and the code was not properly indented, the problem is more trickier than it seems.

Later, he asked me how can you easily tell them apart… not very easy unless you start counting the braces. (if someone know a better way please tell me).

So now I have finally understood how convenient is that Python uses an explicit this for each class method.

Better late than never…
