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!

Come one, come all! Adobe MAX 2013 is just around the corner! For those of you attending, I’ll be presenting a session on the last day based on my “Puzzler” series! The session will be geared towards Javascript developers, particularly, helping you identify quirky behaviour and subtle nuances of the language. The goal of this presentation will be to give you some extra understanding around these scenarios to hopefully help you write better code, all presented in a series of fun “puzzles” :) The session is called “Javascript Puzzlers”, and here are the details…

What: JavaScript Puzzlers: Puzzles to Make You Think (and write fewer bugs)
When: Wednesday, May 8th from 3:30PM – 4:30PM
Where: Los Angeles Convention Center, Room 504, 1201 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA
Why: Because Javascript can be tricky!
