    var a = 2;

    function foo() {

    var a = 3

    console.log(a);

    };

    foo();

    console.log(a);

    foo();
    prints:
    3
    2
    3
    This is different from the thing you said. It is because of es6?

    I think all the variables defined using 'var' are function scope in ES5 not global scope as you said @3:17

    Dude your videos are awesome. Question for you – with ES6, do we need to use IIFE much anymore if at all?
