The Rise and Rise of JavaScript


The rise and rise of JavaScript «

One of my resolutions this year is to continue researching JavaScript. Not jQuery, not CoffeeScript, plain old JavaScript. Reading this article by Dan North did nothing but make me want to read all the things.

The article is a bit lengthy, but worth it. Dan’s explanation of the quirkiness of JavaScript being lovable and that really resonates with me.

If anything, JavaScript continued to prove itself in 2011 and using that as an indication, we’re in for a treat in 2012.
