You may have come across a term on your JavaScript adventures - destructuring assignment. Sounds scary, but it's actually incredibly useful and simple.

Destructuring in JavaScript is basically getting something out of an array or object and assigning it to a variable. Here's an example:


    const person = {
        firstName: 'Jimmy',
        lastName: 'McCoder',
        age: 28
    }

    const { age } = person

    //will log '28'
    console.log(age)
