JavaScript: Enter The Dragon – Dmitry Baranovskiy



Some time ago now JavaS­cript stopped being a toy lan­guage and became a ser­i­ous player. Yet when you browse through the pleth­ora of code and dif­fer­ent dis­cus­sions you get the sense that a lot of people, even those who use it every day, are still quite con­fused about the lan­guage — its great power, and your great respons­ib­il­ity toward it as a developer. Demys­ti­fy­ing this is the pur­pose of the entire second day of Web Dir­ec­tions Code, which Dmitry will intro­duce in a key­note you won’t for­get for a long time.

A presentation recorded at Web Directions Code 2012.

    Dmitry!! You're so cool man. Thanks for making me want to implement JavaScript in better more efficient ways and hate it at the same!

    For anyone watching this save yourself the trouble.  Start at about 15 minutes in where he actually gives you an idea of what is important to understand about javascript.  You can stop watching about about the 26 minute mark.
    Everything else before and after is him talking about the sad state of affairs in the javascript world.  Javascript is such a catastrophically horrible language, at least syntactically.  But as he says, form follows function.

    He seems competent enough to me; but in your chauvinism you seem to forget that generally reading (and listening, depending on the speaker) a language is significantly easier than writing and speaking – especially for a language like English.

    He has an accent, but he is perfectly understandable. His English is very good.

    Thought this was a good motivational talk to encourage trying to be a better Javascript programmer.
