One of the most frustrating things is that a lot of the samples and StackOverflow posts that you see are riddled with anti patterns. So trying to find the proper way to do something can be a bit challenging. I hope that by continuing to standardize JS and develop best practices that some of the less desirable solutions will stop making the front page on search results.
I have been babeling, grunting, gulping, bowering, and package.jsonsing all month. It's actually kind of fun, I feel more confident being able to reason about how JS fits into the overall picture of my application and also how to structure more complex applications.
