Arrow Function semi-colon required?
I watched a video on Treehouse on introduction to arrow functions in which the instructor ended the arrow function creation with a semi-colon after the function body. I noticed in this video however that the instructor doesn't use a semi-colon at the end of the last function in the Convert.JS file. Can you confirm if the semi-colon is required or optional?

It is, however, considered "best practice" to always use it. It was probably overlooked in this particular case because the functions are being converted from the conventional form, which does not have a semicolon after the body.
