Presentation: "The Overlooked Power of JavaScript"

Track:   Web 2.0

Time: Tuesday 16:55 - 17:55

Location: SAS Suecia

Abstract: In this talk, we'll go back to the basics that most JavaScript resources omit. We'll talk about JavaScript as a language, learning its fundamental concepts and the simple rules that underlie the sometimes bewildering behavior. We'll learn about JavaScript's unusual object model, how to use it to build conventional object-oriented systems, and also how to exploit it more completely to do things you'd never think of doing in Java. We'll also learn some good ways to structure large JavaScript programs. This talk is not about fancy web pages. It's about a powerful tool that can be used for fancy web pages, but that's also cropping up in many other places. It's worth your time to learn it well.
