JavaScript Training Sucks

I’ve been interviewing JavaScript developers for jobs on a fairly regular basis since 2010. I have helped scale apps from zero users to millions of monthly active users. Through all of that, there is one common theme: almost everybody knows a little JavaScript, but almost nobody really understands JavaScript. 99 out of 100 JavaScript developers I interview lack the skills required to hit the ground running on a scalable production JavaScript application.

Big +1 for his two interview questions. If you can't coherently answer them, then you don't know javascript yet. Although I would accept 'not really, I avoid inheritance if at all possible' as an answer for question 1.
