You must ask the right questions

In my last post, I said that the only stupid question is the one you don’t ask. Another important aspect of web development, though, is knowing the right questions to ask your favourite search engine.

This always reminds me of the following scenes from the film I, Robot 👇

The Right Question (I, Robot)

Until Detective Spooner asks the right questions, the hologram of Doctor Lanning repeatedly reminds him: I’m sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.

And so it is with phrasing your search terms. This is one of those things you get better at the more you do it.

It’s also something we encourage in the Vanilla JS Academy. Chris gives you enough resources to get started, but not all the answers. We want to help you learn how to ask the right questions 👍
