Why sometimes does such block of code have semicolon at the end and sometimes not?

Minute 04:23 button.addEventListener('click', () => {}) was executed without semicolon at end. I see at some other sources as well. It's sometimes confusing for me to know whether in terms of syntax it doesn't need it or whether it does but porgram runs anyway.

It's developer personal choice. To end the event listener with a semicolon or not but most of them use semicolon. When there will be thousands of lines of code, this comes handy.

Great. Thank you beverlygrant
