#19 - Safe string concatenation
2016-01-19 by @gogainda
Suppose you have a couple of variables with unknown types and you want to concatenate them in a string. To be sure that the arithmetical operation is not be applied during concatenation, use
var one = 1; var two = 2; var three = '3'; var result = ''.concat(one, two, three); //"123"
This way of concatenting does exactly what you’d expect. In contrast, concatenation with pluses might lead to unexpected results:
var one = 1; var two = 2; var three = '3'; var result = one + two + three; //"33" instead of "123"
Speaking about performance, compared to the
join type of concatenation, the speed of
concat is pretty much the same.

concat function on MDN page.
