JavaScript Sucks And It Doesn't Matter

A session at DDD North 2012

JS is a rubbish language.

No really - it is, you've all seen the 'WAT' video right? (If you haven't I'll show you some of the WTFs we're all talking about.

But why is any of this important? What makes for a good codebase? The language? The frameworks? The developers? What metrics are we going to use when it comes to working this out?

Let's look at at some C# (let's face it, probably our collective preferred language) and some idiomatic and equivalent JS - and see that actually, this world isn't so bad - so long as we focus on writing good code.

Warning: I am likely to have some opinions in this talk and be derisive about tooling and our reliance on it.
