  • Wormholes in JavaScript

    Wormholes in JavaScript

    Wormholes in JavaScript Computers are interesting machines. From a theoretical point of view, we tend to think of them as automated mathematicians, or put another way, just really good at adding, multiplying, and working with numbers in general.
