  • Stop Writing JavaScript by Hand:
    7 Ways Transpiling Makes JavaScript Better
  • Time: Wednesday @ 1:30pm | Room N-125

There are a lot of language-level features that aren't available in stock JavaScript that are available in languages that can be automatically translated (or transpiled) into JavaScript. This talk will give an overview of various languages (such as CoffeeScript and Dart) and what they uniquely bring to the table. For example, TypeScript gives you type safety, ClojureScript allows Lisp-style dynamic binding, etc. I'll be making an impassioned plea, that we encourage these languages to be more than "just JavaScript" just as we don't force other high-level languages to be "just machine code".
