comment Do any languages have syntax for promises?
Wow - thanks for such a complete list. Hadn't heard of async/await. Here's the ES7 spec for it: tc39.github.io/ecmascript-asyncawait/#intro, and some sample code

comment Project is nearly done, but procedural spaghetti code. Do I rewrite or just keep trying to ship it?
If you want to be a professional software engineer, ship. If you want to be a hobbyist programmer, by all means, rewrite constantly, but don't expect anyone to pay you for it.

comment Is it okay to not completely understand code functionality?
I think there's a distinction here between "understanding" and "being capable of understanding". Copy/pasting code that you couldn't understand if you stared at it is a different proposition to copy/pasting code that you're happy to look at more closely if something goes wrong.

comment Writing commit messages as a solo developer?
Interesting to revisit this answer. I've taken a somewhat extreme position recently: no commit messages at all. But that's on a pretty flat HTML/JS project where I can't imagine ever attempting to track down a regression. Any effort spent writing commit messages would almost certainly be better spent somewhere else. (Not all projects are in this category!)
