The “Things every JavaScript developer should know” seems to indicate that the author doesn’t know JavaScript quite as well as they ought to. Their FizzBuzz solution is the one that a prior “This Week in JavaScript” indicated was not the best way to achieve the result as it requires more if statements and is less flexible than the alternative. The author also suggests that forEach has very limited use whereas it actually eliminates the need to use for and while loops with arrays and handles both dense and sparse arrays.

I agree. I think thought hat the only limitation with forEach that was being meant, is that it’s not for objects (as some people attempt to use it for), and is only intended for arrays.
