I Didn't Know JavaScript Could Do That!

A session at Stir Trek: Darkness Edition

Friday 17th May, 2013

3:30pm to 4:30pm (EST)

JavaScript used to be a language that most ASP.NET developers shied away from, or only used it for some simple form validation. With the ascent of jQuery, developers are realizing that JavaScript is more than just a way to validate data or perform some simple functions. It's a powerful language that is quickly becoming the engine driving most web applications. But for most developers, their exposure is limited to using JavaScript through frameworks, such as jQuery, and they really haven't been exposed to the true power of JavaScript. In this session, we'll learn about some features of JavaScript that you may not be familiar with. From the concepts of truthy and falsey, to extending your objects through prototypal inheritence (and properly exposing your object's functions), we'll take a tour through the JavaScript language that will make you say "I Didn't Know JavaScript Could Do That!".
