This session was presented by Luke Hoban, a Microsoft PM that also worked on C# and F#.

In his talk, Luke started by going over the history of the Java-Script language.

Later he started to review the core concepts that comprises the Java-Script language.

  • The basic syntax
  • Type system
  • Objects
  • Functions
  • Prototypal inheritance

Luke gave a nice slide that contains most of the Java-Script syntax, personally I think it’s a great way to get up to speed on a new language:

Other things that Luke showed were common usage patterns for Java-Script and the new features in EcmaScript 5 (=Java-Script), like the “strict mode” feature which is supported in the new Internet Explorer 10 Platform Preview 1.

All in all, Luke gave a great review of the Java-Script language and the new features in its latest version.

That’s it for now,
Arik Poznanski.
