Evolution of a Developer

The road to JavaScript expertise is hard, but easy to forget. Let’s go back to the beginning and work our way to the top, reminding ourselves of the struggle (but ultimate triumph!) of how we become the incredible developers we know we are. We’ll talk about individual journeys, shared experiences, and the community that has brought us all together.

Presented at JSConf EU 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

* The slides aren't as great without the video - stay tuned for updates :-) *
