When and why did you decide to pursue this language?
How long did it take for you to accomplish this dive from the day you decided to pursue it, and why did it take that long?
I think around a month. It was hard at first to learn but it got easier as I got more experienced. There is definitely a steep learning curve but it gets significantly easier if you put sufficient time into it. I think one of the tricks I learned was to work on projects that I sincerely enjoyed. This made practicing a lot easier.

Tell us a coding story about this language and dive! (At least 5 paragraphs)
After a few very long hours of debugging, I decided to use “===” in the future. Like the double equals sign comparator, “===” is also used to detect equality. However, it avoids many of the unexpected “features” of the former. It’s used to test for strict equality and avoids doing any typecasts.
