Higher Order Functions Javascript

In Javascript, functions can be assigned to variables in the same way that strings or arrays can. They can be passed into other functions as parameters or returned from them as well. A “higher-order function” is a function that accepts functions as parameters and/or returns a function.

Functions that operate on other functions, either by taking them as arguments or by returning them, are called higher-order functions.

Higher order functions are a result of functions being first-class citizens in javascript.
