Leveraging Code Quality Tools or How I Became Crockford's Sworn Enemy

A session at GothamJS

Saturday 9th July, 2011

11:50am to 12:30pm (EST)

JavaScript is a powerful and flexible language that allows you to write very elegant programs. However, it has some parts that are easily breakable and no matter what you are writing it is very important to not to ship broken code. Fortunately, there are tools that were designed to catch potential problems in your code and report about them before the deployment of your code.

This talk is about integrating such tools into your daily development workflow. It will give you a basic idea of the problems that JavaScript has and approaches you can take to prevent those problems. Along the way, we will introduce JSHint, a community-driven code quality tool, and how we use it at Disqus to make sure that we don't ship broken code to 500m+ visitors.

The talk will also explain why code quality tools are important to the community and describe our plans towards the next iterations of JSHint.
