Let’s expand our programming minds by thinking about how we can use javascript in experimental and unusual ways. Can we write javascript without ever using the ‘this’ keyword? Would we want to? Can we write javascript without sharing mutable state? Would we want to?
You might not leave this talk with code examples that you’ll apply to your production code tomorrow, but you’ll leave with a different perspective and a new way of thinking about how JavaScript can work.
