Dmitry Baranovskiy Enters the Dragon with JavaScript. See below for full session description and more resources.

Got a taste for it? Be there for the dev track at Web Directions South 2012.

This presentation was recorded at Web Directions Code in Melbourne on May 24 2012.

Session description

Some time ago now JavaScript stopped being a toy language and became a serious player. Yet when you browse through the plethora of code and different discussions you get the sense that a lot of people, even those who use it every day, are still quite confused about the language — its great power, and your great responsibility toward it as a developer. Demystifying this is the purpose of the entire second day of Web Directions Code, which Dmitry will introduce in a keynote you won’t forget for a long time.

About Dmitry Baranovskiy

Dmitry started his journey over a decade ago as a backend developer, then a designer and has now finally settled and accepted his fate as a frontend developer. Despite his deep knowledge of CSS and HTML, he mainly specializes in JavaScript and is well known as the creator of Raphaël as well as other JavaScript libraries.
