todayilearned In Ruby, you can forego the parenthesis in methods if you don't have any parameters. That's clutch.

In JS you can do that when there's only 1 parameter in some cases. However, I much prefer the consistency to just always use the same convention. If it's always parentheses then it's easier for a larger team to read.

I didn't know that re: JavaScript! But I agree, especially with JS where its very bracket/parenthesis/semi-colon reliant.
