Metascript: going beyond Javascript limitations

A session at NodeJS Conference

We all know that Javascript is not a perfect programming language, and several projects (Cofeescript, Typescript and many others) are addressing this problem.

Each of them tries to solve one particular issue, and the problem I
have with them is that I want all of them, plus a real metaprogramming
framework (that almost none of them offers). Metascript is a new programming language that compiles to Javascript and tries to solve exactly these problems.
In the talk I will give an overview of the language and show how metaprogramming can be used to provide solutions to issues like the nesting of functions in CPS code, clean "class" constructor definitions, dependency injection and others.
