This week for Javascript - The Hard Parts we cover Callbacks and Higher Order Functions

These functions like map, reduce and filter are powerful tools and keep our code DRY but can be complex to navigate. We will learn to diagram through even the most complex higher order functions and callback scenarios so you can build your own higher order functions from scratch

This is a concept that 80% of JavaScript engineers do not understand but are at the core of every single successful application.

This is possible because we'll understand the essence of these tough concepts and then switch into pair-programming through the challenges to cement the concepts.
