          JavaScript is a language that works wonders when there are tools like ESLint, Prettier, and FlowType that cover your back.

          I use my IDE’s (Visual Studio Code) ESLint integration to validate the code I write in realtime.

          I use ESLint to ensure my JavaScript code meets my team's coding standards, and to avoid known pitfalls. The extensibility allows me to write specialized modules that detect team-specific issues as they occur.
