For Loop Increment Operators

In this video Guil uses i += 1 in the for loop

for ( let i = 0 ; i < listItems.length ; i += 1 )

whereas most of videos in the full stack track use i++. Since both work is there an advantage of using one over the other?

for ( let i = 0 ; i < listItems.length ; i ++ )

The only advantage is that "i++" is more DRY than "i += 1". In other words, "i++" looks cleaner.
