Beyond JavaScript

A session at JSConf EU 2011

Saturday 1st October, 2011

4:30pm to 5:00pm (CET)

Have a peek into the future. JavaScript is now more popular than Java/C# and even ACME uses it to write enterprise applications. But there's a new language in town. It's called Blub and all the cool kids are using it. They say that Blub is more powerful than JavaScript, but exactly what does that mean? And shouldn't we just keep using JavaScript?

JavaScript won't be our first choice forever. As attendees of a developer conference, we have broad horizons already, but keeping it up requires constant work. This presentation will do the work for you. It will examine some core features in languages more powerful than JavaScript. It will hurt your feelings, but it will also make you think about what evolution's next step might be like. In the end, it will make you less reluctant to getting your hands dirty with Blub when the time comes.
