JavaScript is one of those very powerful languages that is often misunderstood and underutilized. It is quite popular, yet there is so much more we can do with it. In this presentation we will deep dive into the capabilities and strengths of this prominent language of the web. Along the way, we will discuss things we should avoid and look at some practices that we should favor.
