JavaScript: flexible, beginner friendly, and many web developers' first programming language. What's it like to learn a second language after JavaScript? How do you map JS learnings onto another programming language?

Learning Python surrounded by Python developers helped me discover all of JavaScript's weirdnesses. What do you mean Hoisting, Prototypal Inheritance, and this don't exist in Python? But I love my curly braces and semicolons! Accepting JavaScript’s quirks was one thing, but fully acknowledging them only came with learning Python.

Watch me unearth core differences between JavaScript and Python, and learn why I'm a better JavaScript developer because of it!
