Many great articles have been posted this year on Hacker Noon, but you — busy programmers and developers — can’t possibly hope to find the time to read even half of them half as thoroughly as they deserve. With this in mind, I have gone through the trouble of picking the best ones for your reading pleasure.

2018 has been a great year for JavaScript. In June, ES2018 has been introduced — bringing us new features such as asynchronous iteration, generators, and rest/spread parameters. The libraries and frameworks have got much smaller and faster. React, Angular and Vue have all got new features and are now going head-to-head when it comes to being the best choice for creating applications. What a time to be a JavaScript developer!

Now, without further ado, here are my favorite Hacker Noon Javascript stories:
