Will your JavaScript app work in 2030?

Will your JavaScript app work inĀ 2030?

Navigating the JavaScript world is not an easy business nowadays. The speed of things is just mind-boggling. What if, as a participant of this Formula One race, you would be required to develop something that has to work for 15 years? Our project team had that very requirement. We had no other possibility than to start to explore what we should do to our codebase to ensure that long lifespan.

In this presentation I'll explore if it's even possible for a JavaScript app to technically work in 2030. And then if it is, what should we do to our codebase to ensure that it won't become legacy just in a matter of years?

If you think some of your friends could use the tips from this presentation, please share this with them at Twitter or at Facebook. Thanx a million!
