So Cassie Evans tweeted this the other day:

When there's a 'discussion' on here it's common to see folks say 'learn the web platform'.
Got me thinking.
What's the most useful thing you've learnt about the web platform for YOUR area of expertise?
This got me thinking about a thing that it literally took me YEARS to understand (and frankly severely hampered my coding skills during that period.) And when I say years, I don’t mean like 1 or 2 years. I started learning BASIC and HTML/CSS around 2000, and have been on and off developing since then. So by years, i mean about 15+ years.
The thing about functions…
I remember trying to learn to use PyGTK, and never being able to do much with it.
So, for all you new to development, understand this: You can pass a function as an argument to another function.
