JavaScript Puzzlers @ VanJS

At Adobe MAX this year, I presented the first in a series of presentations that I call “Puzzlers“. Inspired by Joshua Bloch’s Java Puzzlers, my talk presented some peculiar, and sometimes seemingly wrong, behavior in the JavaScript programming language, all demonstrated through the use of clever puzzles! Anyways, the talk had some great feedback, and started some fantastic discussions, and so I thought I should keep going. I most recently finished presenting a variation of this talk to the fine folks at the Vancouver JavaScript Developer Group, VanJS. Below is the video…

Thanks to the awesome folks at VanJS for having me!


JavaScript Puzzlers – Puzzles That Make You Think (presented at Adobe MAX 2013)

I’ve just recently returned from Adobe MAX 2013, Adobe’s annual “Creativity Conference”.  I had the opportunity to host a session this year.  I ended up doing a presentation called “JavaScript Puzzlers”.  In short, my presentation presents the audience with short, code-based “puzzles” which the audience then has to solve.  The puzzles themselves are quite simple, anywhere from 2 to 20 lines of code.  The answers, however, more often than not, can be quite surprising.  Well, the video from the presentation has finally gone online and so here it is…

I’ve also made the full set of slides available here…

We had a great turnout, and some fantastic discussions!  Thanks to everyone who was able to attend!  I had a blast!
