What if the simulation is powered by JavaScript? This explains a lot.

Simon has been building browser based simulations such as coldwar.io and ratsofthemaze.com over the past few years, showcasing them at numerous JS Confs and our own TXJS. Since he's in town this week, he's going to give us a casual retrospective on this work and a dive into some of the code.

Special Guest Host

Lon and Andrew are off to JSConf US and Aaron is taking a sabbatical to finish his upcoming definitive book on ConcreteAbstractFactoryAdapterImplementations, so Rebecca Murphey has graciously offered to come out of retirement and host this month's event.
