Episode 10: Javascriptocalypse


What if you wanted to write a fancy in-browser app but were less than enthusiastic about the Javascript ecosystem?

In This Episode:

  • Namespaces and the jQuery trick
  • Punting on the whole issue and using (ahem) ClojureScript
  • Javascript as the assembly of the web
  • As Java begat JVM languages, so JavaScript begat JSVM languages?
  • The appropriately named EcmaScript and its versions and implementations.


What is it with all this CamelCase. Aren’t we done with that yet?
