Javascript Complexity

Javascript is a language used in web development. I would argue that it is Object Oriented (OO). And due to this the principles guiding development in an OO language apply.

When developing software, at its basic level, you have three responsibilities that need to be managed.

  1. Input: consist of user actions.
  2. Output: change to the web browser.
  3. Logic: any piece of code where a decision is made.

To manage this complexity, you should be Unit Testing if not testing-first.
