MIX 2011: Java-Script – The Language
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
- 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,
