JSX is like a healthy vegetable that tastes like decadent chocolate cake. You feel guilty, but it’s good for you.

Reminder: Always name your non-trivial function expressions -- even in ES6. Otherwise, you may get some funky behavior from transpilers!

In this example, forgetting the name breaks the tail call optimization. Oops!

Mike Elgan originally shared to Technology:
 
Google made a brilliant acquisition of a brilliant app called Timeful. Brilliant, right?

Google has acquired a startup called Timeful, which makes a time management app. It's what you might call a smart app. Very smart. 

Basically, you tell the app what you'd like to accomplish on a regular basis, and it finds time in your schedule to make that happen. 

Do you want this technology in Google Calendar?
