Too Long; Didn't Read

Being at ConsenSys, I get to work with some of the best developers in the space. I recently published <a href="https://hackernoon.com/getting-started-as-an-ethereum-web-developer-9a2a4ab47baf" target="_blank">this article</a> as a “Getting Started” guide for new developers who have stumbled into this magical <a href="https://hackernoon.com/what-is-ethereum-c82a4b558553" target="_blank">Ethereum</a> ecosystem and don’t want to leave. It was not long until Joseph Chow raised issue with my neglecting to mention <code class="markup--code markup--p-code">BigNumber</code>s and not longer after that until Jim Berry dropped a wonderful description of the danger at hand. So props to both of them and also thanks to Aakil Fernandes for explaining how <code class="markup--code markup--p-code">BigNumber</code> works to me.
