The context of the situation is described very poorly.
Currently the guide seems like a twist of chaotic steps rather than migration guide.

So the main reason to introduce this is to reduce boilerplate. But there are other ways to do so w/o going against redux philosophy.

Yeah, actually apart from those 2 moments, the tests are OK.
Ah, about setTimeout in a loop - better write something like "nine times 10" and "ten times 10" instead of making people count tens "manually".

What must be done in order to implement Lexical Scoping?

Get the object
Dereference the current scope chain
Reference the current scope chain
one of the mentioned

I've seen lot of tests, but this is really a crazy question.

Also I think beginner doesn't differ very much from intermediate. I got 60, 58 & 59, though.

I see this uws project too often. I already have seen it FIVE times, how it is fast.
That is enough to be annoying and consider downvoting.
Of course this is not another 100th article "functional programming in JavaScript", but still

I'd disagree with MaxArt.
There are more things which wouldn't be available in ECMAScript in the next few years:
- types
- all variables *and* object fields are immutable by default
- ADTs & pattern matching
- compile-time auto-currying

Block as expressions (`do` and others) are minor things as well as special keyword for recursive functions or Pascal-like range loops, which do not define key language features.

But I'm still not convinced the language is really useful. We already have tons of languages, including BuckleScript – an Ocaml specifically designed to be compiled into JS.

Author says that clojurescript is used by the most companies w/o even describing how this usage is performed. No TIOBE, github stars, so what then? Amount of mentions in job postings?
Apart from that good reasoning and points.

The only thing I don't like about AirBnB's style guide is that they blur the term "style guide" stuffing a lot more into their own.

But from standpoint of eslint rules it almost doesn't matter.
