As the language of web browsers, JavaScript is pervasive in web application development. It also offers particular advantages in that it is well-suited to functional programming and has the flexibility of a dynamic language. This talk will give a taste of what JavaScript programming looks like, some practices for getting the most out of the language, and some some common pitfalls.

Jesse Hallett is a Senior JavaScript Engineer at Jive Software. He is also an organizer of the Portland JavaScript Admirers, a local user group. Jesse has given talks on JavaScript and other topics at various user groups and conferences including Open Source Bridge, NodePDX, and Portland Code Camp.

This event is open to the public.
