How to use semicolons in JavaScript

In this video, Andrew Greenlee takes a semi-deep dive into the finer points of semicolons in JavaScript. Andrew covers the rules for Automatic Semicolon Insertion (ASI) in the ECMAScript specification and illustrates how ASI applies in a number of practical and not-so-practical code examples. Andrew also shows how knowledge of ASI can help you to write better code that is readable not only by a JavaScript engine, but also by the rest of your development team.
