JavaScript: The Gateway Language, or Why You Should Teach Your Kids JavaScript

When we talk about JavaScript, we're not *really* talking about JavaScript: we're talking about JavaScript and its various libraries, frameworks, and compilers. JavaScript is a gateway language for new technologists, providing a large amount of functionality spread across numerous libraries, growing in complexity with the students' skill.

Presented at Mountain West JavaScript on March 17, 2014 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
