    Hey, did you read Crockford "The Good Parts"?
    JS is perfect, it's just DOM API in browsers that sucks!
    Good luck, study, study, study and then teach your colleges;)

    Thanks for the information, great job…

    Do not make the language application dependent, most of the additions not useful. I like JavaScript it makes no assumptions, after 32 years of development I am trying to learn how to not make assumptions and I am constantly trying to simplify my code (language independent), and I use no abbrivations.

    My recommendations: “structure” “new ByteString()”
    “get function name(…)” “set function name(…)” "read" "write" "open(url-spec or file-spec)"

    All hail Pyscript!

    @iglor, because arguments includes all passed-in arguments, including those that are explicitly declared in the function signature. So you have to count your arguments and shift/offset accordingly. Also, unlike 'this', 'arguments' is not a reserved word, which lets people do stupid stuff, like overwrite it.

    Excellent talk, and I can't wait to see all of these features come to life in our everyday job!
