Lesson 19 - Advanced Array Methods In JavaScript

In the previous lesson, Arrow Functions And Modern Event Handling In JavaScript, we introduced arrow functions.

We also showed a little hack how to avoid the that variable when handling DOM events and keep the element that triggered the event. Today, we're going to continue with arrow functions and learn how to use them to work with arrays.

Advanced Array Methods In JavaScript
