The Politics of JavaScript

A session at Web Directions Code 2013

Thursday 2nd May, 2013

9:00am to 10:05am (EST)

British philosopher John Locke cautioned that all knowledge is limited by experience. We can only wonder what he would have made of the JavaScript community, where understanding of, or familiarity with, the problem space are of little concern when there's a good bandwagon ready to be jumped on.

I'll ponder the emergence of moralizing and faith-based JavaScript and discuss how an alternative approach grounded in knowledge, experience and understanding can not only make us better developers but also, by freeing us from FUD induced constraints, encourage creativity and innovation.
