JavaScript Quiz + HandlebarJS

JavaScript Quiz

Speaker: YOU. Yes, that's right, you will be participating, okay, only if you want to, but it is highly encouraged.

Recently, Juriy Zaytsev, otherwise known as "kangax" and core developer for Prototype, released a quiz with some rather challenging questions related to some of the unique underpinnings and nuances of the JavaScript language.

We will take the quiz, collectively, and even go through the answers, collectively!  Group participation is key here as the more people contribute, the more people learn.

JavaScript instance operators, HandlebarJS Templating

Kyle Simpson will continue the discussions from the JavaScript quizzes and zero in on a few powerful but often-confused JavaScript operators: new, delete, and instanceof. To illustrate the use of these operators, we'll look at a pattern for custom error handling.

Armed with a new found confidence in some of JavaScript's nitty gritty details, we'll take a look at a new templating engine (HandlebarJS) which can run either browser-side or server-side. Coverage will include both the templating syntax as well as a code review of the engine's internals.

Afterwards, the discussion carries on one block away at The Draught House, where it just happens to be pint night so you can get your beer fix here.
