I know what you mean.  In my mind, every programming language is C with
slightly different syntax....but I struggle to map JavaScript onto my
simple mental model.    I've just about sussed closures, and it is starting
to make much more sense now.....Dojo looks fine now I realise what those
require([....],function(){...}); statements are about!
