    What’s the argument here? All I see is a lot of “but ecosystem” – why can' the ecosystem use something functional, like promises, instead of imperative callbacks?

    If Promises were a “missed opportunity” I’d wonder how much more opportunity node could have handled while it grew faster than any platform I’ve ever seen.

    I guess that PHP wasn’t a missed opportunity, either?

    Is “ecosystem” really being used as argument against building maintainable software?

    Seriously, skip this article and read the original:

      This looked like a really fun article…but I didn’t read past the first paragraph because I found it too annoying to zoom in (so I could read the text easier) and scroll.
