JavaScript Patterns and Anti-patterns

JavaScript, the language that we all laughed at and our usage of it was limited to copy/paste of scripts to have some dynamic content in a web page has all grown up. From jQuery on the client-side to node.js on the server, everywhere you look there’s JavaScript. Unfortunately there’s also a ton of horrible, twisted and somewhat convoluted code that would make any developer that remotely cares about clean code suicidal.

A dynamic language that has somewhat given us a license to do anything we want has been abused to the point that much of the blame has been placed on the language itself as opposed to the developers. In this talk we’ll discuss some of the patterns and anti-patterns of JavaScript, things you should and shouldn’t do.
