I hope this article will convince people that Tcl is not that bad. Prologue

Node.js, MongoDB, and you: an intro in parts A few years ago, two technologies were born. One was a platform for building network applications, the other a database. Both were slightly rebellious and shared a fascination with javascript. Their courtship was inevitable. In the years since, both technologies have grown up. blog.adtile Viljami S. wrote this on While I’ve worked over a decade building various websites, it has only been the past 3 years that I’ve started learning more on how to work with plain JavaScript, instead of using jQuery always as the starting point. The fact that I’m learning a dozen new things every day now, has made working on Adtile’s JavaScript SDK feel more like building an open source project than “actual work,” and I have to say I like that a lot. Today, I’m going to share some of the basic things I’ve learned during the past years, which will hopefully also help you to dive into the world of plain JavaScript, making it easier to decide whether or not you will need jQuery in your next project.
