@JeremyLT and other mods
This is a tangent from this post, but is there some rule that we can’t use
const declarations in the problem sets until they’re introduced, or are the problem sets just showing their age? With regards to the Stand In Line problem in the linked post, if the testArr weren’t being declared with
var then it wouldn’t even be possible to reference inside the function definition.
I understand it would be a quite an undertaking at this point, but I agree with what you said the other day that ES6 is not special in 2021, and really think it would be reasonable to go through and change all of the instances of
var in the curriculum.
