comment Is obtrusive JavaScript ever ok?
What I am talking about is how will the site function if Javascript is turned off. There are some times where it will be fully functional (if maybe not as nice) and others where it will fail completely. I am not worried about old browsers that do not support JavaScript (Netscape 1). Of course in any case there is no reason to write BAD javascript

comment How important is it for a programmer to know how to implement a QuickSort/MergeSort algorithm from memory?
In truth 99.999% of the time when you need a sort just using the library that comes with your language or runtime will be the correct choice.

comment what tools should I use for quality assurance and testing for front end javascript?
Well what you want to do is use QUnit or Jasmine to test the various functions or methods in your code, that will get the various parts of your code working correctly. Then you use Selenium to do end to end tests. The problem is that Selenium tests can be rather slow so you want to do as much as possible with unit tests
